Premium Processing of FY 2017 H-1B Cap Petitions to Begin No Later Than May 16

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has announced that Premium Processing of fiscal year 2017 H-1B cap cases will be postponed until no later than May 16. USCIS stated it is delaying the start of the 15-day Premium Processing clock so that it can focus on initial intake, data entry and receipting of the large number of petitions it expects to receive this cap filing season. USCIS’s announcement means that employers that requested 15-day Premium Processing service for their H-1B cap cases filed on April 1, 2016, may not see action taken on their cases (approval, denial or issuance of a request for evidence) before Tuesday, May 31, 2016. read more
