AILA reported that the NSC has confirmed the delays. The NSC explained that the delays step from "record high volumes of I-129 premium processing filings." Despite the delays, the NSC assured AILA that those who have filed premium processing requests for H1B petitions will be receipted for the day the premium processing requests were received. The NSC "advised that AILA members should wait at least 10 days after NSC's receipt of the I-129 petition before inquiring with the NSC's PPU on the status of the case."

Regarding premium processing, it is important to note that premium processing for new H1B petitions will be suspended indefinitely beginning on April 3, 2017. H1B petitioners should not make premium processing requests for H1B petitions filed on April 3, 2017 or later until the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) lifts its suspension of premium processing.
