vali said:I would be surprised to see approvals with RD in Feb or Mar now that USCIS wants to implement premium processing services for I-140. 3-4 month backlog will be the norm. Look at I-129, it is constantly in a 3 month backlog even when H1B quota is exhausted.
Nevertheless, I would pay for the premium processing for I-140. Moreover, I would gladly pay for premium processing for all steps.
What will they do with those applications already filed with concurrent I140/I485 ?
If everybody pays for premimum processing, the only beneficiary will be just INS. How could they guarranttee 15 days for all?
Think about PERM, they said it took 2 months, mine was 5 months.
