EIG Special Alert: Premium Processing Update

USCIS Resumes Premium Processing of H-1B Extensions

As an update to our previous report, USCIS will resume accepting Form I-907, Request for Premium Processing Service for H-1B extension petitions beginning today, July 13, 2015. USCIS is ahead of schedule, as it previously announced that its premium processing service would be temporarily suspended until July 27, 2015. USCIS initially implemented the temporary suspension in order to process H-4 EAD applications in a timely manner following the new regulation permitting certain H-4 visa holders to apply for work authorization.

As a reminder, USCIS will only accept the new version of Form I-907.
