USCIS resumes premium processing for H-1B Cap Petitions

//USCIS resumes premium processing for H-1B Cap Petitions

Monday, September 18th, 2017, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) resumed premium processing  for all H-1B Petitions that were selected in the 2018 Cap. This means that H-1B cap petitions may now convert a pending petition to the expedited review process by paying an extra $1,225 for each petition. This recent development adds H-1B cap cases to the list of Petitions that are able to premium process and include Conrad J-1 Waiver Physicians and Cap-Exempt employers.  USCIS indicated that it will resume premium processing for all other H-1B petitions as its workload permits.

Please contact SPS Immigration if you have questions on how this may impact your case.
