How This Impacts Mobility
The USCIS previously suspended premium processing for all I-129 and I-140 petitions due to the COVID-19 pandemic on 20 March. As the workforce continues to adapt to changes in these difficult times, the phased rollout of premium processing signals the return to certain employment-based immigration processes. However, mobility employers and professionals must bear in mind that we anticipate a not yet issued nonimmigrant visa executive order to be issued by the administration in the coming weeks that potentially may limit access to specific nonimmigrant visas. Worldwide ERC® will continue to update its members on such developments as they affect workforce mobility.
