On March 29, 2022, USCIS announced three new policy changes, all aimed at improving efficiency for those applying for immigration benefits. The measures include:
- Improvements to technology and staffing, along with new internal processing goals, to reduce the pending case backlog
- Expanding the types of applications that are eligible for premium processing
- Efforts to streamline the process for Employment Authorization Documents (EAD) and renewals
The National Law Review has posted an easy-to-read summary of these changes. To read the complete policy announcement, please visit the USCIS website.
