USCIS has announced that starting February 19, 2019, it will resume premium processing service for all H-1B petitions (including change of employer or “port” petitions) filed on or before December 21, 2018. Petitioners seeking to upgrade their pending H-1B petitions to premium processing must submit their request to the service center where the petition is pending. In some instances petitions have been transferred to a service center other than the office where the petition was originally filed. The premium processing request must be filed at the service center where the petition was transferred and a copy of the transfer notice must be submitted with the request. If the premium processing request is sent to the wrong service center, USCIS will forward the request to the correct location. However, the 15-day premium processing clock will not start until the premium processing request has been received at the correct center. If a petitioner was issued a request for evidence (RFE) for a pending petition, it should include the RFE response with the premium processing request. This follows last month’s USCIS announcement to resume premium processing for FY 2019 cap-subject H-1B petitions filed in April 2018. There has been no update, yet, regarding the availability of premium processing for this year’s cap-subject petitions, which will be filed in April 2019.
