USCIS Reinstates Premium Processing for All H-1B Petitions

USCIS will resume premium processing on Tuesday, March 12, 2019 for all H-1B petitions.

If a request for evidence (“RFE”) for a pending petition has been received, the RFE response should be included with the premium processing request.

Please note that when an H-1B Petitioner has properly requested premium processing service, a 15-day processing time is guaranteed by USCIS.  If the processing time has not been met, USCIS will fully refund the premium processing fee and continue to expedite processing of the petition.

Please also note that requests for premium processing on any H-1B petitions that have been transferred to another office must be submitted to the service center now handling the petition, along with a copy of the transfer notice.  In matters where premium processing requests have been erroneously filed at a different center, USCIS will forward the request to the petition’s current transferred location, and the premium processing clock will only start when the request has been received at the correct center.

For more information on the reinstatement of USCIS’ premium processing service as well as how to determine where to send premium processing requests for H-1B petitions that have been transferred, please reference:
