Premium Processing now available for certain H1B petitions
USCIS announced this morning that it will resume Premium Processing for H1B petitions that are filed by Cap-Exempt employers, i.e. * An institution of higher education;
* A nonprofit related to or affiliated with an institution of higher education; or
* A nonprofit research or governmental research organization.
Previously, USCIS had resumed Premium Processing on June 26th for H-1B petitions filed on behalf of physicians under the Conrad 30 waiver program as well as interested government agency waivers.
This is good news for some employers. Hopefully, USCIS will resume Premium Processing for all H1B petitions soon.
