USCIS Will Begin Premium Processing of Certain H-1B Lottery Cases on May 20, 2019
April 1, 2019
The USCIS announced that it will begin premium processing on May 20, 2019 for H-1B petitions filed in this year’s lottery requesting a change of status where the request for premium processing was concurrently filed. Starting May 20, employers who did not concurrently file the premium processing request with the change of status H-1B petition may file for the premium processing upgrade on Form I-907. All other requests for premium processing of H-1B lottery petitions (ie, where the beneficiary is outside the US and consular notification was requested) must wait until at least June 2019 (or later, date not announced at this time).
