H1B Premium Processing Suspended: USCIS Will Temporarily Suspend Premium Processing for All H-1B Petitions

Just a couple of hours ago, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services agency, USICS, announced that starting with April 3, 2017, All the H1B Premium Processing Applications are now suspended.

This news has come as a panic to many F1-OPT Students and H1B applicants, as some of them are mistakenly considering it as a suspension of the H1B program itself. Contrary to this, USICS has clearly mentioned that this is a suspension on the “premium processing” of the program and not the actual applications itself.

H1B applications are generally done using the USICS designated form I-129. This is a petition form for the application for the H1-B visa, which as you know, is done through a lottery process in the recent years.
