The US Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) has just announced that it will temporarily suspend premium processing service for H-1B Cap petitions for Fiscal Year 2019. The suspension is expected to remain in effect until September 10, 2018. Once the suspension is lifted, pending H-1B Cap petitions can be upgraded to premium processing service, if desired. Other H-1B petition types, including petitions to amend or extend H-1B status, or to change employers, are not impacted at this time. The official announcement can be seen here. We will continue to monitor these developments and will post updates as new information becomes available.
