Has anyone filed I-140 recently? How long did it take to get receipt notice? Wondering if should upgrade to PP once received but not sure if worth at this point, and what would have been the difference had we done it initially

Mine was filled November last year and I upgraded mine to premium, as the estimated processing time for regular at that time was 6-8 months without RFE.

Premium got approved in 4 days, got the approval email before I even got the notice. Had I not upgraded, I probably would have gotten caught up in the COVID mess and might have still been waiting.

From my experience, regardless of COVID, I’d upgrade. It gives you a fixed timeline (except for RFE) and as you get approved quicker, you can complete your 180 days with approved I140 sooner too. Then moving jobs gets easier and you don’t lose your place in the queue.


Oh ok you said upgrades so it sounded like it was after the fact! Thank you... sucks with the increased fees now :/
Hopefully things start picking up! It’s been a year since my process was initiated
