USCIS Expecting to Reinstate PP for All H-1B Cases by October 3rd

Bridge Team Member

Back on September 18, 2017, USCIS announced that they resumed premium processing (PP) for H-1B cap cases.

We have received word that USCIS has notified the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) that they may potentially resume accepting PP for all H-1B petitions by Tuesday, October 3, 2017. This includes H-1B transfers, amendments, extensions, and other H-1B types.

Please note that USCIS has not yet officially released a statement yet. Therefore, please do not file premium processing upgrades until USCIS has made the announcement. We'll continue to keep you updated of any advancements.
