      OP
      I read an article where it was mentioned that they're continuing suspension of premium processing. But not sure if that would apply to a transfer now.

      The suspension isn't for transfers.

      https://www.uscis.gov/news/uscis-extends-and-expands-suspension-premium-processing-h-1b-petitions-reduce-delays

      Read through this. Pp is suspended. Here are exceptions to pp suspension:

      * Cap exempt companies (non profit, research etc)
      * Renewing h1 for the same company same role.
      * Prove hardship and other extraordinary circumstances.

      Transfer is considered new petition, so effectively no PP.

    10 days. However response communication from USCIS sucks and their site is having technical issues so online status for many cases does not show.
