U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) offers premium processing service for certain employment-based petitions and applications which guarantees processing within 15 calendar days of receiving Form I-907, Request for Premium Processing. However, this year USCIS has announced that it will begin premium processing all H-1B cap-subject petitions on May 12, 2016, regardless of the date on which the premium processing form is received. This includes premium processing for U.S. Master’s Cap petitions.
H-1B applicants are encouraged to subscribe to the H-1B Cap Season e-mail updates here.
