Premium Processing Suspended for FY 2021 H-1B CAP Cases

Premium processing service for FY 2021 cap-subject H-1B petitions will be suspended temporarily, according to a recent USCIS announcement.  

For applicants who are requesting for a change of status from F-1 nonimmigrant status to H-1B, premium processing service will be resumed no later than May 27, 2020.

For all other cap-subject H-1B cases, premium processing will be resumed on or after June 29, 2020.

For all other non-cap H-1B petitions, including extension / change of status, change of employer, amendments, etc., premium processing service continues to be available. 

Premium processing service requires an additional filing fee of $1440. In return, USCIS promises to issue a decision within 15 days or refund the additional filing fee. The decision could be an approval, a request for evidence or a denial.
