Cap-Exempt H-1B Petitions Once Again Eligible for Premium Processing

Effective immediately, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will resume premium processing for select cap-exempt H-1B petitions. Cap-exempt petitioners who are eligible for premium processing can file Form I-907, Request for Premium Processing Service, along with the filing fee of $1,225

Such petitioners include: 

  • An institution of higher education;

  • A nonprofit related to or affiliated with an institution of higher education; and

  • A nonprofit research or governmental research organization.

Premium processing will also resume for petitions where the beneficiary will be employed at a qualifying cap-exempt institution, organization or entity. 

USCIS will make future additional announcements regarding resuming the premium processing for additional H-1B petitions.
