Delays in Regular Processing for O and P Petitions
- Published: Thursday, 19 November 2015 10:17
O and P petitions are currently taking longer to be processed than the posted processing timeframes and includes tips for filing if the beneficiary’s services are needed promptly. Although USCIS posts that the regular processing time for O and P petitions is two weeks, in practice, regular processing at both VSC and CSC Service Centers is currently taking approximately eight to ten weeks, not including additional processing time if an RFE is issued.
If the beneficiary's services are needed promptly, you will need to file under premium processing. Filing Form I-907 and paying the $1,225 filing fee will yield a response by USCIS within 15 days.
