USCIS Resumes Premium Processing for all H-1B Extensions
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has resumed accepting premium processing for all H-1B extensions – Premium processing is now available for all types of H-1B petitions. The H-1B visas is used to provide skilled workers for a wide range of specialty occupations. When a petition is filed and premium processing (There is a fee associated with Premium Processing) is requested, USCIS guarantees a 15-calendar day processing time. If USCIS does not meet that guarantee, they will refund the petitioner’s premium processing service fee and continue with expedited processing of the application.
The USCIS had previously resumed premium processing for H-1B petitions subject to the annual cap, petitions filed on behalf of physicians under the Conrad 30 waiver program, as well as interested government agency waivers and certain H-1B petitions that are not subject to the cap.
If you have any questions regarding the H-1B visa or need help with any other immigration issue, please call the immigration lawyers at (617) 367-6750.
