Payment method for i-140 and i-907 applying EB-1A from India

I am ready to file i-140 EB1-A and i-907 (premium processing) from India. The i-907 form says it accepts checks and money orders only from US based banks and financial institutions. I do not have a US bank account. Can I get a money order/demand draft from Citibank or HSBC in India (since they also have branches in the US)?? What is the way I can pay for i-907?? They dont accept credit card for I-907 as well. Please help.

The cashier's check is nothing but the foreign draft from the bank.
https://www.uscis.gov/i-140
"$700. You may pay the fee with a money order, personal check, or cashier’s check. When filing at a USCIS Lockbox facility, you may also pay by credit card using Form G-1450, Authorization for Credit Card Transactions. "

They have option to pay by credit card.

If you want to to be absolutely sure( of course you need to be), check with the local US embassy to get your help needed.

I dont think that this is something new as many NIW 140 files (self petitions) get filed from abroad have the same issue. So it wont be an issue. Good luck to your 140.

Thank you so much for the reply Harirajmohan. I-140 seems straightforward now that i know that cashiers check is the same as demand draft in India.
The instructions on I-907 says that "The check or money order must be drawn on a bank or other financial institution located in the United States and must be payable in U.S. currency" Does cheque here also mean the same as demand draft and does it have to be from a bank that is also based in the USA as it says above (Citibank or HSBC for example)??
Thanks again for the reply.

For example, If you get the bank draft / cashiers check from icici, they actually issue the draft/check kind of doc which is actually made out of New York branch which will tender the amount if someone deposits your draft inside US. They operate in that way to make the clearance easier. So you should be fine for I907 form too.
