U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has announced that beginning Monday it will accept requests for premium processing for all fiscal year 2020 cap-subject H-1B petitions.
Background: Premium processing allows petitioners to request 15-day service for an additional fee. USCIS announced on March 19 that it would take a two-phased approach to premium processing for the fiscal year 2020 H-1B cap season, with the first phase for “change of status” petitions and the second phase for all other cap-subject petitions. Premium processing for change of status petitions began on May 20 and remains available.
BAL Analysis: Employers are encouraged to assess their pending H-1B cap cases and consider whether premium processing may be appropriate for any cases where it has not yet been requested.
