USCIS H-1B Premium Processing Resumes
UPDATE: On June 7, 2019, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that effective June 10, 2019, it will re-open Premium Processing for all remaining FY 2020 H-1B cap-subject petitions selected under the H-1B lottery. On such date, Petitioners whose H-1B cap-subject petitions were selected under the H-1B lottery can submit Form I-907, Request for Premium Processing Service, and requisite government filing fee to USCIS. Premium Processing for other H-1B petitions (such as "change of employer" and "amendment" and "extension" petitions) remains available.
UPDATE: On March 19, 2019, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced a two-phased approach to Premium Processing for FY2020 H-1B Cap Petitions. For FY2020 H-1B Cap Petitions requesting a "Change of Status," Petitioners may request Premium Processing by concurrently filing the request with the H-1B Cap Petition filing. However, USCIS will temporarily suspend Premium Processing for those cases selected or counted against the FY2020 H-1B Cap and begin Premium Processing for these petitions no later than May 20, 2019. For all other FY2020 H-1B Cap Petitions (such as "Notify" petitions), Petitioners may not request Premium Processing concurrently with the H-1B Cap Petition filing. Instead, USCIS will notify the public as to when Premium Processing may be available for those petitions, with USCIS indicating that it will not begin until at least June 2019. Premium Processing for other H-1B petitions (such as "change of employer" and "amendment" and "extension" petitions) remains available.
UPDATE: Effective March 12, 2019, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will resume Premium Processing for all H-1B petitions.
Effective February 19, 2019, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will resume Premium Processing for certain H-1B petitions.
