USCIS Resumes Premium Processing for FY-2019 H-1B CAP Petitions
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.
