CIS Resumes Premium Processing for All H-1B Petitions on October 3

28 Sep

On Wednesday, September 27th, U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (CIS) announced the return of premium processing for all H-1B petitions, effective October 3rd.  This includes H-1B petitions seeking a change of status, change of employer, or amendment to current status.  Premium processing had previously returned for other types of H-1B petitions.  Accordingly, all H-1B petitions are eligible for premium processing beginning October 3rd.

To initiate an “upgrade” to premium processing for a pending H-1B petition, contract your Foster immigration attorney.  Foster LLP will continue to monitor CIS procedures and will provide additional information via future Immigration Updates© and on our firm’s website at
