US revives H-1B premium processing


Well-Known Member
H-1B work visas will be eligible for fast processing again after the option was suspended in April to deal with a high number of new applications, according to the US Citizenship and Immigration Services. Companies can pay a $1,225 fee to process the skilled foreign worker visa within 15 days instead of the several months it would otherwise take, allowing companies to know early on if prospective employees are eligible. It’s particularly good news for tech firms, which rely heavily on the visa to hire overseas talent.
