H-1B Premium Processing Program Suspended

March 11, 2017 § Leave a comment

USCIS has announced earlier this month that it will halt its premium processing service for H-1B applications, starting on April 3, 2017.  The suspension could last up to six months while USCIS catches up on its caseload.  Applications turned in on or after April 3 with a request to premium process will be rejected.  Read the text of this USCIS announcement.

Premium processing is an extra service that allows a case to be processed within 15 calendar days from its receipt for an additional $1,225 filing fee. Paying for this extra service generally reduces the wait time for a decision but does not guaranty an approval.
