In order to help manage premium processing requests, USCIS had previously announced that they would offer premium processing in a two-phased approach during the FY 2020 cap season. The first phase, which started on May 20, included premium processing the FY 2020 cap-subject H-1B petitions requesting a change of status.

Starting today, June 10, 2019, USCIS will begin premium processing for all remaining FY 2020 H-1B cap-subject petitions. Petitioners may now file Form I-907, Request for Premium Processing Service, with the service center that is processing their petition.

Please note that starting today, USCIS has also temporarily suspended using pre-paid mailers to send notices. USCIS will use regular mail to send all final notices from June 10 to June 24, 2019.
