Premium is still suspended if you are changing employer. Have an external offer but cant join as premium processing of H1b for all categories hasn't resumed. Anyone else in same situation? Are you planning yo take risk by joining on receipt?

      Trump administration budget calls out exactly zero dollars in the foreseeable future for premium process fee revenue. Draw your own conclusion.

      But new h1b pp started, and it comes from the same bucket. It started 2 weeks back. So that's merely your interpretation then

      USCIS is funded by application fees not budgets

      Why would Trump administration allocate budget for PP when people are supposed to pay for it?

      @codejunkie because the constitution requires that no money shall be spent except that which is specifically appropriated by Congress. Period. This includes user fees since they are deposited with the Treasury and are re-drawn from there by the agency to provide services explicitly authorized by the Congressional budget. If Congress chooses to divert these user fees elsewhere, as they have done many times throughout history, that is their sole prerogative, regardless of whether you or anyone on Blind thinks it is appropriate.

      The President’s proposed budget is not law until enacted by Congress, but this section of it may in fact ultimately be enacted.

      Article 1, Section 9. Educate yourself, especially if you seek citizenship here.

      Weirdflex. Damn son take it easy, deloitte ... dont you have a ppt to work on ? Im pretty sure not everyones looking for citizenship. You may have stated some good facts and thank you for that but poor codejunkie asked a simple question bruv. Still there are a lot of people (not me) who’ve confirmed that USCIS was working during the shutdown and they got their applications processed. Now you maybe right but aint nobody got time to go through articles man. Thats why we are on Blind. Unlike you though. You on the beach without a project? Still, take it easy and buy yourself a snickers bar or something. Goddamn

      Lol, I’m late to the party but poop_gold kicked ass!
      @weirdflex - since you already know a lot about this and have done your research, can you kindly point us all to which item is exactly missing from the proposed budget vs a previous budget? Screenshots would definitely help!

    USCIS resumed premium for cap on July 24th/2017....and all petitions on Oct 3rd/2017. Hope it won’t take that long this time to resume for all petitions.
    Feb 52
    • Oracle redviper
      Not true. Jul 24 2017 was for cap exempt. For FY 2018 cap, they resumed premium on Sept 18 2017 and then for all petitions on Oct 3rd 2017.
      Feb 5
    • KPMG CBGa86
      Above statement is correct. 2weeks between cap and all petitions.

    If it doesn't resume on Feb 19th, or before April 1st; then how would USCIS resume after April 1st? I bet they will be busy processing new applications.

    By end of April, people who filled on regular processing on September will hit 240 day mark and have to leave the country (if they are working on receipt)
    Feb 41
    • VMware codejunkie
      I don’t think this is correct. The 240 day clock starts after your i-94 expires.

    Why they didnt do for all categories

    • Amazon Amoeba
      they would not have the resources to handle the number of pp requests that would come in if they did it for all categories.

      Risky. Know someone who got rejected after joining. FTE role in a mid-sized public tech company in the Bay area with a pretty decent comp package. His employer has an office in India, so he is working there now while they reapply for H1
