USCIS AGAIN ACCEPTING H-1B EXTENSION PREMIUM PROCESSING

Effective immediately the USCIS is again accepting H-1B premium processing extensions petitions, ending a seven week suspension of the program.

In May, the USCIS suspended premium processing for all H-1B extension petitions.  The suspension was because the USCIS feared that the volume of H-1B extension petitions would surge due to the new H-4 EAD rule. 

Rumors persisted that the USCIS might end the suspension earlier than the previously announced July 27 reenactment date.  USCIS closely monitored the demand for the H-4 EADs and are confident that the implementation of the H-4 EAD program has worked well.  Accordingly, the suspension of the H-1B extension premium processing program is over.
