P2 Processing Time & Expedited Fee Increase
The fee for P2 regular processing is $460 US plus the administration and courier fees.
The additional fee for expedited processing is $2500.00 US.
Also, please be reminded that at this time we are recommending a minimum 60 days processing time (unless filing premium processing). The above timeline is an estimate, which is subject to be increased or decreased by USCIS, with no requirement on USCIS to provide petitioners advance notice of changes to processing times. AFM’s P2 Administrative Team monitors USCIS processing progress weekly, in an effort to provide as solid a time line as possible.
