U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has announced that they will begin premium processing for cap-subject H-1B petitions requesting premium processing on April 27, 2015. The 15-day processing period set by 8 CFR 103.7(e)(2) will begin on April 27 regardless of the date on the Form I-797 receipt notice.

Our office has already begun receiving receipts for H-1B cap-subject cases filed requesting premium processing. As previously announced, USCIS completed the H-1B lottery process for FY 2016 on April 13, 2015.

If you have any questions about premium processing, please feel free to contact our office.
