USCIS to Suspend Premium Processing

USCIS to Suspend Premium Processing for Fiscal Year 2019 H1B Cap Petitions

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) today announced that premium processing requests will not be accepted for cases filed pursuant to the fiscal year 2019 (FY19) H1B Cap. Any request for premium processing (form I-907) filed with a cap-subject H1B petition will be rejected. If only one check is submitted with a cap-subject H1B petition, combining the I-129 and I-907 fees, the entire petition will be rejected and returned to the petitioner.

It is expected that premium processing for cap-subject H1B petitions will be suspended until September 10, 2018. The USCIS will announce when premium processing for FY19 cap cases will resume. At that time, pending cases may be “upgraded” by submission of form I-907 and the premium processing fee.

H1B cases not subject to the cap, such as H1B extensions and amendments, can continue to utilize premium processing, as usual.
