USCIS announced that beginning today, July 13, 2015, the agency will resume accepting premium processing requests for H-1B extension of stay applications. This provides an early cancellation of the previous USCIS directive suspending premium processing of extension petitions from May 26th through July 27th. Pending H-1B extension applications may now be upgraded to premium processing by filing the appropriate application and fee. Any premium processing requests for H-1B extension of stay petitions received by USCIS before July 13th will be rejected.
