ADVISORY: Premium Processing for all H-1B Visas Resumes, Indicating a Move Toward Faster Approval

March 13, 2019—Washington, D.C.— The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has just announced that it has resumed premium processing for all H-1B visa petitions as of March 12. USCIS guarantees a 15-day processing time when an H-1B petitioner properly requests the agency’s premium processing service, so it is important to take action within the 15-calendar day processing time.

Those who have received a request for evidence (RFE) for a pending petition should be sure to include the RFE response with the premium processing request. If the pending H-1B visa petition was transferred, the premium processing request must be submitted to the USCIS service center that is handling your petition.
