How Fast Is H1B Premium Processing?

What is the timeline for obtaining an H-1B under premium processing?

USCIS is required to adjudicate the H1B application within 15 days of receiving the H1B premium processing request. With premium processing, USCIS communicates with the employer via email (as well as regular mail). So, for example, your employer will get an email notifying him or her that the application was received and also whether it has ultimately been approved or denied.

It's important to note that USCIS has suspended premium processing in the past and may continue to do so at intervals, so please confirm that H1B premium processing is an option for you before opting for it.

If you have any further questions about the H1B visa or other immigration questions, please feel free to contact us and we can help you out.
