  1. I thought that H1B transfer is basically a petition for new H1B (since it is a new employer), How can we use amendment in a case of transfer?
  2. Here is the what i found on USCIS website. It says that premium is available for change of nonimmigrant status or consular notification or amendment. On May 26, 2015, USCIS temporarily suspended premium processing for H-1B petitions filed requesting an extension of stay until July 27, 2015. Form I-907, Request for Premium Processing Service, for a Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker, requesting an extension of stay for an H-1B nonimmigrant will not be accepted during this time. This temporary suspension allows USCIS to implement the Employment Authorization for Certain H-4 Spouses final rule in a timely manner and adjudicate applications for employment authorization filed by H-4 nonimmigrants under the new regulations. USCIS anticipates receiving an extremely high volume of Form I-765 applications once the final rule becomes effective on May 26, 2015, and needs to temporarily suspend premium processing to ensure that we can provide good customer service to both H-1B petitioners and H-4 applicants. USCIS will monitor our workloads closely and may resume accepting premium processing requests before July 27, 2015, if we determine that we can once again provide customers with the level of service provided through premium processing. USCIS will continue to premium process H-1B extension of stay petitions filed with Form I-907 premium requests prior to May 26, 2015. Premium processing remains available for other Form I-129 H-1B and H-1B1 petitions. This includes petitions subject to the H-1B cap and H-1B cap exempt petitions that are requesting a change of nonimmigrant status or consular notification. Premium processing also remains available for Form I-129 H-1B petitions filed on behalf of individuals who already have H-1B nonimmigrant status as long as the petition is requesting consular notification or an amendment of a previously approved petition that does not include a request for an extension of stay.

    H1B transfer on or after may 26th 2015

    Thanks guys! This helped me with my decision.
  4. I did go through multiple forums for an answer but couldn't find a clear one yet. will Premium process be suspended for H1B transfers too starting may 26th ? I know there is nothing called transfer as such, but what ever process we follow to transfer from one h1b employer to another h1b employer, does it fall under extension of status?
