Today, USCIS announced that it has resumed premium processing for certain cap-exempt H-1B petitions, including petitions where the petitioner is an institution of higher education, a nonprofit related to or affiliated with an institution of higher education, or a nonprofit research or governmental research organization. Effective immediately, those cap-exempt petitioners who are eligible for premium processing can file Form I-907, Request for Premium Processing Service for Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker. The Form I-907 can be filed together with an H-1B petition or separately for a pending H-1B petition. USCIS plans to resume premium processing of other H-1B petitions as workloads permit.
