It takes average 3 - 6 months for I-140 to get approved(I got it in 40 days), but like lot of other people i am stuck with retrogression :(

There wont be too many takers for this premium processing for EB3. whats the point in getting i-140 in a jiffy if you have to wait 4+ years to file 485 after that ? The only ones it can help are those seeking 3 year extensions and those seeking to change employers.

Just wondering if anybody ever complains of I140 being slow? :p

The I-140 stage these days isn't very slow, but at one time in the not-too-distant past it was...

Correct me if I am wrong.

They started premium processing for I140 so that they could stop parallel filing of 140 and 485.

Maybe. But parallel filing itself has been dysfunctional ever since retrogression hit. Talk of replacing one dysfunctional system with another.

just being cautious the regular 140 aready submitted might take more time if resources are put to premium 140

Another way to milk money off of legal immigrant cash cow.

This process will extended the life of H1's by another 3 years for those who are in their 6th year of H1 with priority dates in their 6th year. :)

I could find this useful. I am in my 6th year expiring June 1, 2007. My employers are just about to file LC, so I guess being able to process I140 by premium will enable me file for a three year extension before my current stay expires.

May be they did it for those who are in 6th year and did not file LC 365 day before 6 year expiry.. Now they can file LC in perm get approval fast and then get Premium 140 to get 3 year extension on H1B.

What impact does premium processing have on your application, if your file is stuck in Dallas BEC for over 3 1/2 years? Does this mean the application will be processed faster now?! Or is this only for new applicants?:(

140 premium has nothing to do with BEC labor processing. Labor processing will not speed up because of this. THis is a very calcualted move by USCIS, they are trying to speed up processing of EB3 140, but it helps noone, not Indians, Chinese or even Rest of the world.
In fact this migh even hurt us a little more if they stop concurrent processing.
