U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced today it will suspend premium processing requests for fiscal year 2021 H-1B cap-subject petitions when filing season opens April 1.
BAL Analysis: Petitioners should factor in the suspension in premium processing. Additionally, a USCIS regulation is pending that, once finalized (at the earliest this spring), will lengthen the premium processing window to approximately three weeks instead of the current two. The earliest that premium processing is expected to be available for consular H-1B cap petitions is June 29. Petitioners may therefore anticipate that the earliest they would receive a response on these petitions is late July. Clients may log onto BAL’s dedicated H-1B Electronic Registration Resource Center for the latest news updates, FAQs, analysis and podcasts related to H-1B cap season.
