U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) resumed processing today for all H-1B visa extension of stay petitions. Premium Processing is now available for all types of H-1B petitions.
H-1B visas provide skilled workers for a wide range of specialty occupations, including information technology, engineering, and mathematics. When a petitioner requests the agency’s premium processing service, USCIS guarantees a 15-calendar day processing time. If that time is not met, the agency will refund the petitioner’s premium processing service fee and continue with expedited processing of the application.
