USCIS resumes premium processing of all H-1B petition categories

On October 3, 2017, USCIS announced it would resume premium processing of all categories of H-1B petitions. Premium processing has been suspended for most categories of H-1B petitions since April 2017. For an additional filing fee of $1,225, USCIS will either approve, deny, or issue an RFE on H-1B petitions within 15 calendar days of filing. This is good news for “cap gap” beneficiaries and other persons in need of rapid processing of their H-1B petitions. Any pending H-1B petition can be upgraded to premium processing by filing the I-907 form and paying the premium processing fee.
