Processing Delay for H-1B Petitions for Visa Cap 2019 with Temporary Premium Processing Suspension

There will be processing delays for H-1B petitions that are lucky enough to be selected in the lottery system for Fiscal Year (FY) 2019. This is because effective April 2, 2018, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will be suspending premium processing, temporarily, for FY 2019 H-1B Petitions that are subject to visa cap. Foreign nationals waiting for H-1B lottery results will still need to maintain or extend their immigration status. They may also consider additional immigration application(s) as back-up, if eligible.
