USCIS has announced that the agency will resume premium processing for all H-1B petitions filed for medical doctors under the Conrad 30 Waiver program, as well as interested government agency waivers.
The Conrad 30 program enables certain Doctors to continue to stay in the US on a temporary visa after completing their medical training to work in rural and urban areas that are facing shortage of physicians.
The programs were designed to improve health care access and facilities for American people located in underserved areas.
USCIS has not specified any timeline when it will resume the premium processing services for other H-1B petitions. They have only mentioned that they plan to resume premium processing of other H-1B petitions once their workloads subside.
They have also mentioned that the USCIS will make announcements with specific details with regards to when they will begin to accept premium processing for other H-1B petitions.
