Premium Processing returns for FY-2018 H1B petitions
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has resumed premium processing today for all H-1B visa petitions subject to the FY2018 cap. This includes those petitions which are under the Master’s cap also. In addition to this, USCIS previously resumed premium processing H-1B petitions filed on behalf of physicians under the Conrad 30 waiver program, as well as interested government agency waivers and for certain H-1B petitions that are not subject to the cap. Premium processing remains temporarily suspended for all other H-1B petitions, such as extensions of stay, change of employer or H1B amendment petitions.
