USCIS Suspends Premium Processing For H-1B Cap Petitions

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced that it is temporarily suspending premium processing for FY2019 H-1B cap-subject petitions, effective April 2, 2018.

USCIS confirmed that it will continue to accept premium processing requests for H-1B petitions that are not subject to the FY 2019 H-1B cap. This includes H-1B extensions and H-1B change of employer (“transfer”) petitions.

We will send out a new client update when premium processing is reinstated for FY 2019 cap subject petitions.
