USCIS Reinstates Premium Processing for H-1B Petitions


USCIS has reinstated Premium Processing for H-1B Petitions for petitions subject to the Fiscal Year 2018 cap. This brings back Premium Processing for three classifications of H-1B: Conrad 30 physicians, non-profit entities and the current fiscal year’s cap. Specifically, H-1B extensions and amendments for cap exempt petitions are not yet eligible for the process, but may still attempt to request expediting under the guidelines previous set forth by USCIS. USCIS has indicated it will continue to assess current workloads and make future announcements as they begin to accept other cases for Premium Processing.

Update: USCIS has indicates it will resume Premium Processing for all cases as of October 3rd.
