FAQs about the New High-Skilled Workers Rule
and Its Impact on New H-1B Visas

On January 17, 2017, the final Department of Homeland Security (DHS) rule entitled “Retention of EB-1, EB-2, and EB-3 Immigrant Workers and Program Improvements Affecting High-Skilled Nonimmigrant Workers” took effect.
The rule amended regulations related to various employment-based immigrant and nonimmigrant visa programs, including the H-1B.

Since this is the first filing season where it will be in effect, we wanted to provide answers to the commonly asked questions about the changes.
Important Note:
Beginning April 3, 2017, premium processing for the H-1B, which is an expedited service offered for an additional fee, will be temporarily suspended. USCIS has indicated the suspension may last up to six months.
