USCIS Announces Resumption of Premium Processing for Non-Cap H-1s

Effective July 24, 2017, USCIS resumed premium processing for H-1 petitions filed by institutions of higher learning, affiliates of those institutions, as well as non-profit and governmental research organizations.

USCIS previously suspended premium processing for all H-1 petitions in April 2017. Although the non-cap H-1 cases are now eligible for premium processing, there is no word from USCIS on when cap-subject H-1 cases will have premium processing available again. We will of course keep everyone up to date on this important issue.
