U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that it will resume accepting Requests for Premium Processing for all H-1B extension petitions effective July 13, 2015. Premium processing for H-1B extensions had been suspended on May 26, 2015 so that USCIS could dedicate staff to the implementation of a new rule allowing certain H-4 spouses to apply for employment authorization application. USCIS clarified that it will now accept an I-907 premium processing request on any H-1B extension petition, including pending petitions filed during the premium processing moratorium. If an I-907 was filed and/or received by USCIS prior to July 13, 2015, it will be rejected.
