By July 25, 2017Uncategorized

The U.S. Government has resumed H-1B Premium Processing, but only for institutions of higher education and nonprofit and governmental research organizations.  Under Premium Processing, H-1B applicants can be eligible for visa approvals within 15 days.  Unfortunately, for-profit businesses are still not eligible for Premium Processing.  For 2017-2018, H-1B visas were capped at 65,000 a year, with an additional 20,000 available for applicants who have earned masters degrees or higher in the United States.
