USCIS will suspend premium processing for H-1B extensions from May 26 through July 27 in order to devote resources to the upcoming H-4 employment authorization program. The unexpected announcement is likely to have a significant negative impact on employers, H-1B foreign nationals and their H-4 dependents. Fragomen and other immigration stakeholders are working to obtain clarification from USCIS and to communicate the effect of the suspension on U.S. businesses.
