SPECIAL PROCESSING

Special Processing is a request that multiple documents delivered to the Department of State on the same day be filed in a certain order (e.g. file first, file second). This request is completed for an additional fee of $70, using DSCB:15-153(a)(17) - Special Processing Form. The Special Processing form must be completed and submitted with each group of documents. The Special Processing fee is in addition to filing fees and expedited service fees. Without Special Processing, documents delivered to the Department on the same day will be separated and may not be filed in the desired order, resulting in the rejection of all documents. If one of the documents submitted using Special Processing is not accepted for filing, the documents to be filed after the rejected document will also be rejected.
