USCIS Resumes Premium Processing for Fiscal Year 2019 H-1B Cap Petitions

January 25, 2019
USCIS will resume premium processing on Monday, Jan. 28, for all fiscal year (FY) 2019 H-1B cap petitions, including those eligible for the advanced degree exemption (the “master’s cap”). Petitioners who have received requests for evidence (RFEs) for pending FY 2019 cap petitions should include their RFE response with any request for premium processing they may submit.

The previously announced temporary suspension of premium processing remains in effect for all other categories of H-1B petitions to which it applied. We plan to resume premium processing for the remaining categories of H‑1B petitions as agency workloads permit.

Premium Processing Service provides expedited processing for certain employment-based petitions and applications. Specifically, USCIS guarantees 15 calendar day processing to those petitioners or applicants who choose to use this service or USCIS will refund the Premium Processing Service fee. If the fee is refunded, the relating case will continue to receive expedited processing. The current filing fee for Premium Processing is $1,410. Premium Processing can be filed with either Company Check or Personal Check.

Should you have further concern, please do not hesitate to contact your corresponding attorney.

Government Shutdown Impact on USCIS Processes

January 3, 2019

The partial U.S. government shut down began on December 22, 2018 will last until Congress passes a funding bill and President Trump signs it. This partial shut down, however, will not affect the employment of “essential employees” (i.e. law enforcement), the “already funded” services and “fee based” services.

Most of immigration services fall under the later two categories, therefore will see limited impacts from this partial shutdown (i.e. all Premium Processing services) However, some USCIS programs operate based on appropriated funds, including E-Verify and EB-5 Immigrant Investor and Regional Central Program. These programs may be suspended or otherwise impacted by a shutdown. We will provide further updates about the impact of a shutdown on these particular programs following announcements by USCIS.

While visa processing at U.S. Consulates abroad is fee-based, the US State Department may see a slowdown or even cessation of these services due to backlogs created within the department until funding legislation is passed. Should you have further concern, please do not hesitate to contact your corresponding attorney.

Cap Gap for Students Without a Rejection or Decision

May 15, 2017

USCIS announced on May 3, 2017, that data entry for FY2018 has been completed and that petitions not selected in lottery would begin to be returned. However, it may take several weeks for all unselected petitions to be returned. In the interim, for those cases where neither a receipt nor a rejection notice has been received, students may continue to benefit from an automatic cap-gap extension until a rejection notice is received. Once such a notice is received, a student has the standard 60-day grace period starting from the date of the rejection notice or their program end date, whichever is later, to prepare for and depart the United States.
