Premium Processing Now Available for All H-1B Petitions

USCIS announced today that it has resumed premium processing for all types of H-1B petitions, effective 10/3/2017.  All petitions including CAP cases, extension petitions, changes of status, changes of employer, etc., are not eligible for premium processing.  Premium processing has been suspended for 6 months since April.  This change is particularly timely for individuals whose cap-gap extension has expired on 10/1/2017.   They may not use premium processing services to speed up the processing of their pending H-1B petitions.
