USCIS Announces Return of Premium Processing for more, but not all H-1B Cases

Following the recent announcement allowing premium processing for last year – fiscal 2019 – cap-subject H-1Bs that still remain processing, USCIS has announced that it will now resume premium processing for all H-1B cases (including amendments, changes of status to H-1B and change-of-employer petitions) filed on or before December 21, 2018.

The moratorium on premium processing hadn’t impacted cap-exempt employer cases or simple extensions, which could still use the 15-day turnaround premium processing service after the moratorium was announced in March of 2018.
