Premium processing resumes for all H-1B visa petitions

US Citizenship and Immigration Services announced Oct. 3 that it resumed premium processing for all types of H-1B visa petitions, according to a report by law firm Miller Canfield in JD Supra [1]. “USCIS’ announcement will come as welcome relief to employers and employees awaiting decisions on pending petitions or seeking flexibility to change status, change employers, and travel,” according to the report. H1-B visas are used to bring highly skilled temporary foreign workers, such as IT professionals, to the US.
