USCIS Suspends Premium Processing for H-1B Cap Petitions

Effective April 2, 2018, USCIS will temporarily suspend premium processing for all cap-subject H-1B petitions. The Service anticipates the suspension to last until September 10, 2018. Requests for expedited service may still be granted on a discretionary basis, provided that the petition meets certain criteria, supported by documentary evidence. However, please note that all other cap-exempt petitions eligible for premium processing will continue to be accepted by USCIS. Once the suspension has been lifted, pending cap-subject petitions may be upgraded upon request.
