After five months of suspension, the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has resumed premium processing of H-1B visas in all categories. Owing to the large number of applications, USCIS temporarily suspended them. The suspension hoped to reduce the backlog of long-pending petitions.

Allowing applicants to get a visa approval in a record 15 days period, the H-1B visa trumps the general visa applicants by months! There is a 65,000 cap on the number of H-1B visas granted in a year. Additionally, for those who have advanced college degrees from US universities, there is a 20,000 cap. The premium processing begun now is only meant for pending applications. New submissions won’t be considered.
