US H-1B Visa Caps to Start April 27
The Citizenship and Immigration Services or USCIS on 27 April, 2015 will start the premium procedure for H-1B visa caps. These are subjected to premium procedures, including requests for exemption for those individuals who are seeking a U.S. Master’s or higher-level degree. According to a news release, the USCIS promulgated that it would adapt to a procedure of premium processing on a short-term basis as per the number of receipt levels that it has processed. The move will be carried out in conjugation with the supposition that H-1B visa cap would be attained within the first five working days of the filing season.

USCIS gives premium processing services for some requests which are job-based and promises a 15-calendar-day processing period. For any H-1B visa requests, along with other visa categorization which are not included under the cap, the 15-day processing time meant for premium services will begin on the very same day that the USCIS obtains the request. On the contrary, US H-1B cap subjected petitions that included the advanced degree level exemption requests will commence their processing period on 27 April, 2015 as set by 8 CFR 103.7 (e)(2). This is regardless of the date mentioned on the Form I-797 receipt notice which shows the date when the premium processing fee was obtained.
