USCIS has announced that it will resume premium processing services for all H-1B petitions on Tuesday, March 12.
Applicants who have received a request for evidence (RFE) for a pending H-1B petition, should include Form I-907 request for premium processing along with the RFE response, if they wish to upgrade their petition.
What is Premium Processing Service?
Premium processing is a service provided by USCIS for certain employment-based immigration benefit requests. The service gives petitioners the benefit of receiving 15-day processing of their petition. Premium processing is typically used in connection with Form I-129 Petitions for Nonimmigrant workers and I-130 Immigrant Petitions for Alien Workers.
If your H-1B Petition was Transferred
If you received a transfer notice for a pending H-1B petition, and you are requesting premium processing service, you must submit the premium processing request to the service center now handling the petition.
You should also include a copy of the transfer notice with your premium processing request to avoid possible delays associated with the receipt of your premium processing request. I
If your petition was transferred, and you send your premium processing request to the wrong center, USCIS will forward it to the petition’s current location. However, the premium processing clock will not start until the premium processing request has been received at the correct center.
