USCIS clarified that as of 7/13/15, 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 prior to 7/13/15 it will be rejected.
Beginning July 13, 2015, USCIS will resume accepting Form I-907, Request for Premium Processing Service for all Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker, H-1B extension of stay petitions. Premium processing requests for Form I-129 H-1B extension of stay petitions received by USCIS before July 13, 2015 will be rejected. We previously announced on May 19, 2015, that premium processing service would be suspended for Form I-129 H-1B extension of stay petitions from May 26, 2015 to July 27, 2015. The temporary suspension allowed us to implement the Employment Authorization for Certain H-4 Dependent Spouses final rule in a timely manner and begin adjudication of applications for employment authorization filed by H-4 nonimmigrants under the new regulation. Premium processing remained available for all other types of Form I-129 H-1B petitions during the temporary suspension. We have closely monitored our workloads and have determined that we can resume premium processing service for H-1B extension of stay petitions on July 13, 2015
