H-1B Premium Processing Now Available

On October 3, 2017, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released information stating that premium processing has been resumed for all H-1B visa extension of stay petitions. Premium processing is now available for all types of H-1B visa petitions. Premium processing was recently reinstated for H-1B petitions subject to the annual cap, petitions filed on behalf of physicians under the Conrad 30 program, and certain petitions that are not subject to the cap.

The H-1B visa provides the U.S. with skilled workers for a wide ranges of occupations. These industries include information technology, engineering, and mathematics. Premium processing guarantees a 15-calendar day processing time from USCIS. If the deadline is not met during processing by USCIS, the petitioner's service fee is refunded and expedited processing continues.

If you have specific questions regarding H-1B, please contact our legal team.
