On July 24, 2017, The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced it would resume premium processing for certain cap-exempt H-1B petitions. The press release states that “premium processing will resume for petitions that may be exempt from the cap if the H-1B 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.”
Since USCIS temporarily suspended premium processing for all H-1B petitions on April 3, 2017 to help reduce overall processing times, it has resumed premium processing for certain H-1B petitions as its workload permits.
