USCIS Resumes Premium Processing for All H-1B Petitions

USCIS announced it will resume premium processing on Tuesday, March 12, 2019 for all H-1B petitions.

Note: This announcement is not specific to the FY 2020 H-1B filing season. A separate announcement will be made regarding H-1B petitions for the FY 2020 H-1B filing season.

For those who have received a request for evidence (RFE) for a pending petition, you can request premium processing at the time of RFE response submission.

For our current clients, if you would like to submit a premium processing request for your pending H-1B case, please let us know immediately.

If you choose to request the premium processing service, USCIS will guarantee a 15-day processing time. If USCIS does not take certain adjudicative actions within the 15‑calendar day processing time, USCIS will refund the premium processing service fee and will continue with the expedited processing of the petition.

If you have any questions regarding H-1B petitions and/or the premium processing service, please feel free to contact our firm.
