H1b premium processing suspended

There won't be premium processing of h1b visas after this month.

Most likely, number of h1b visa granted will come down from 85000 to maybe 5000 or 10000, which will include h1b extensions.

Eb2/3 green cards are going to be painfully difficult if you did not study in the us.

How did you conclude that? Do you mean that will happen in due course of time?

Re: H1b premium processing suspended

Trump administration wants to discourage H1B visa. However, such temporary halt of processing in premium track has happened before for a period of 6 months. This allows the USCIS to clear their backlog of other types of visas as well as H1B applications.

This time the Trump administrations intentions of discouraging H1B and the backlog clearance have coincided, so there is a big ado about it.

In the short term it will affect the H1B recipients for sure, but later things will get back to normal. Offcourse, if the law about raising H1B minimum wage from 60K to 100K or 120K is passed, then H1B will suddenly become non-feasible for TCS, Infosys, MPhasis, et-al.

Also, one has to understand that premium processing is for existing folks in H-1B. Fresh applications accepted on 1st April, if granted approval become effective only from 1st October of that year.

And one can keep working for the new employer or existing employer as the case may be once the h-1b application is accepted by USCIS. Of course, the spouse if having H4 EAD cannot work if the card has expired.

Thankfully I got my cases processed in time.

Re: H1b premium processing suspended

they will not renew your drivers license without your h1 being renewed. so yes you can continue working - but you cannot drive to work and there's no way to expedite your approval either..

By showing Notice of receipt (document showing you have applied and waiting for decision) they extend your driving license for 8 months (8 months is the said max time limit for adjudication on H1B application).

I know the rules too well.

Did this rule come into play recently? As far as I know, DMV wouldn't entertain Notice of Receipt. Has experienced it myself.

Given that DMV is run at a state level, different states may have different rules.

Re: H1b premium processing suspended

There is news that spouses of H1B who had been recently deemed fit to work will probably have to forego that privilege now.

That is still faaaaaar away.. there was a case filed by same group in a lower court and they were unable to prove that Americans' jobs were being harmed. Niw they have filed in higher court .. let's see what happens. If they take away this privelege I may leave US forever.

True, every state has different rules especially for foreigners. I would have spent I don't know how many hours per visit to DMV. I have often thought has anybody ever left the DMV happy.

Here's a clip showing sloth workers at DMV from the movie zootopia. I was cracking up watching this scene, I recommend watching this one.

Thankfully some states have 8-12 licence agencies per city to handle simpler stuff like renewals, car plates, etc.
