Premium Processing Services Suspended for Most H-1B Filings Effective 09/11/2018

Effective 09/11/2018, USCIS is suspending Premium Processing Services for all H-1B petitions until 02/19/2019, except for

(1) "cap-exempt petitions that are filed exclusively at the California Service Center because the employer is cap exempt or because the beneficiary will be employed at a qualifying cap exempt institution, entity, or organization;" and 
(2) H-1B extension petitions with no material changes with the same employer.  

All other H-1B petitions must be filed using regular processing.
