Starting on April 3rd, the option for premium processing of H-1B visas will be suspended. This is an option that allows applicants to pay an additional fee for a chance of accelerated approval so they can get to work in the U.S. sooner.
According to an article from CNBC, while similar suspensions have happened in the past, they have always come with a clear date when the option would be reinstated. This time, there is no precise indication when the option for H-1B premium processing will return, only a six month window. This could lead to serious issues for skilled workers from other countries and their prospective employers.
