USCIS announced that, starting today, it will resume accepting Form I-907, Request for Premium Processing Service (with an edition date of January 29, 2015), for all H-1B extension of stay petitions. Premium processing for H-1B extensions had been suspended since May 26, 2015, so that USCIS could implement the final rule providing employment authorization for certain H-4 spouses in a timely manner. USCIS clarified that it will accept an I-907 premium processing request on any H-1B extension petition, including pending petitions filed during the premium processing moratorium. If an I-907 was filed and/or received by USCIS prior to July 13, 2015, it will be rejected.
