H-1B Extension Premium Processing: Now Resumed

USCIS resumed its premium processing for H1B petitions July 13, 2015, which had been put on hold beginning May 19 to allow for the adjudication of EAD for H4 applications. Due to the new H4 EAD rule implemented May 26, the temporary suspension of H1B premium processing petitions allowed USCIS to process the large volume of EAD for H4 applications while providing good customer service to both H4 EAD applicants and H1B petitioners.

USCIS reminds petitioners that only new versions of Form I-907, Request for Premium Processing Service, dated 01/29/2015 will be accepted.
