USCIS Resumes Premium Processing for All H-1B Petitions

March 12, 2019

USCIS announced today that it  is resuming premium processing on Tuesday, March 12, for all H-1B petitions. If you received a request for evidence (RFE) for a pending petition, you may include your RFE response with the premium processing request.

When an H-1B petitioner properly requests the agency’s premium processing service, USCIS guarantees a 15-day processing time. If USCIS does not take certain adjudicative action within the 15‑calendar day processing time, USCIS refunds the petitioner’s premium processing service fee and continues with expedited processing of the petition.

If an applicant has received a transfer notice for a pending H-1B petition, and is requesting premium processing service, one must submit the premium processing request to the service center now handling the petition. Also include a copy of the transfer notice with your premium processing request to avoid possible delays associated with the receipt of your premium processing request. If your petition was transferred and you send your premium processing request to the wrong center, USCIS will forward it to the petition’s current location. However, the premium processing clock will not start until the premium processing request has been received at the correct center.

Contact any of the attorneys at Deutsch, Killea and Eapen, Immigration Law Firm, if you would like assistance with submitting a premium processing request.
