Immigration Alert: USCIS Resumes Premium Processing for All H-1B Petitions

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has resumed Premium Processing today for all H-1B petitions.

Premium Processing was previously suspended for all H-1B petitions starting April 3, 2017, and subsequently reinstated for H-1B petitions filed on behalf of physicians under the Conrad 30 waiver program, interested government waivers, and Fiscal Year 2018 cap-subject filings.

What Employers Can Expect
Employers can now request Premium Processing for new and pending H-1B petitions by Filing Form I-907 and submitting the $1,225 filing fee. USCIS must respond within a fifteen (15) calendar day period with either an adjudication or Request for Further Evidence, or will refund the fee.

Please visit the USCIS website for further details.

Gibney will continue to monitor these developments. For more information on this alert, please contact your designated Gibney representative, or email
