On October 3, 2017 USCIS announced that it would resume premium processing for all types of H-1B petitions. This includes H-1B cap-subject petitions, extension of stay, amendment of stay, and change of employer petitions.
When premium processing is requested, USCIS guarantees a 15 calendar day processing time for an additional fee of $1225. If that processing time is not met, USCIS will refund the petitioner’s premium processing fees and continue processing the case as quickly as they can.
If you would like to upgrade an already pending H-1B petition to premium processing, please contact our office and we will provide you with further assistance.
