USCIS announced that it will be resuming premium processing for all 2019 H-1B CAP petitions on January 28, 2019. This includes those filed under the Master Cap. Petitioners can now use premium processing along with responses to RFEs issued against FY 2019 H-1B CAP petitions.
Premium processing will remain suspended for all other categories of H-1B to which it applied. USCIS will announce when the suspension for these will be lifted.
For petitions filed with premium processing service, USCIS guarantees a 15-day adjudication for that petition. If USCIS is unable to adjudicate within this timeframe, USCIS will refund the premium processing fees and will continue to process the petition in an expedited manner.

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has suspended premium processing for all H-1 B petitions subject to the Fiscal Year 2019 cap. USCIS will start accepting 2019 CAP H-1B on April 2nd, 2018. USCIS will reject any petitions filed received for premium processing. When the USCIS resumes premium processing, a premium processing request may be filed for any pending petitions.
The reasons given for the suspension of the premium processing are that it will allow the USCIS time to process pending petitions and process the H-1B extensions that are nearing the 240 day mark.
USCIS will continue to accept premium processing for H-1B petitions not subject to the FY 2019 H-1B cap. The suspension of the FY 2019 H-1B cap is expected to last until September, 10, 2018.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will begin premium processing for cap-subject H-1B petitions requesting premium processing, including petitions seeking an exemption for individuals with a U.S. master’s degree or higher on April 27th 2015. USCIS had previously announced that that it would temporarily adjust its premium processing practice due to the historic premium processing receipt levels, combined with the possibility that the H-1B cap will be met in the first 5 business days of the filing season. USCIS provides premium processing service for H-1B petitions and guarantees a response with a 15-calendar-day processing time. For H-1B petitions that are not subject to the cap, the 15-day processing period for premium processing service begins on the date that USCIS receives the request. However, for cap-subject H-1B petitions, including advanced degree exemption petitions, the 15-day processing period will begin on April 27, 2015.
