Premium Processing Will Be Available for Cap-Subject H-1B Petitions

For the past two years, immigration law officials have suspended premium processing for new H-1B visa petitions to make the workload more manageable. However, USCIS has recently announced that expedited service will be available to new applicants filing in the FY2020 lottery, as well as those petitioning for a change in status. To effectively manage the influx of petitions, USCIS will be instituting a two-phase system, beginning on April 1, 2019.
