H1-B Premium Processing Resumed

Posted on October 10 2017 07:09 PM

Premium Processing Available for all Types of H-1B Petitions

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has resumed premium processing for all H-1B visa extension of stay petitions. Premium processing is now available for all types of H-1B petitions.

Background
H-1B visas provide skilled workers for specialty occupations, including information technology, engineering, and mathematics. When a petitioner requests the agency's premium processing service, USCIS guarantees a 15-calendar-day processing time. If that time is not met, the agency will refund the petitioner's premium processing service fee and continue with expedited processing of the application.
