USCIS to Resume Premium Processing for all H-1B Petitioners

October 3, 2017 Britni Sehgal


USCIS announced today its intention to immediately resume premium processing for all H-1B visa petitions. This service provides expedited processing for certain employment-based petitions and guarantees a 15-calendar day processing time from USCIS.

Resumed premium processing would apply to all remaining H-1B cases for which expedited services have not already resumed, including H-1B extensions.

Until recently, premium processing was suspended; however, on September 18, 2017, USCIS resumed premium processing for H-1B petitions subject to the Fiscal Year 2018 Cap. Earlier in the summer, USCIS had resumed premium processing H-1B petitions filed on behalf of physicians under the Conrad 30 waiver program and interested government agency waivers and for certain H-1B petitions that were not subject to the cap.
