Previously, USCIS temporarily suspended premium processing for all H-1B petitions. USCIS has resumed premium processing for all H-1B visa extension-of-stay petitions. USCIS also announced that premium processing is now available for all types of H-1B petitions. If that time is not met, the agency will refund the petitioner’s premium processing service fees and continue the expedited application process.

H-1B visas provide opportunities for workers in a wide range of specialty occupations. When a petitioner requests the agency’s premium processing service, USCIS guarantees a 15-day processing time.
