Premium Processing Now Available for All H-1B Petitions


Today USCIS announced in an e-mail to stakeholders that, effective immediately, it is resuming premium processing for all H-1B extension of stay petitions. Premium processing is now available for all types of H-1B petitions.

USCIS resumed H-1B premium processing incrementally, beginning with H-1B petitions filed for physicians under the Conrad 30 Waiver program and then those filed by institutions of higher education and nonprofit or governmental research organizations. Most recently, USCIS resumed premium processing for cap-subject H-1B petitions on September 18th.
