Effective today (March 12, 2019), USCIS is once again permitting premium processing for all H-1B case types. As of this time, it is unclear whether this will extend into the new cap filing season.
In its announcement, USCIS encourages Petitioners with outstanding requests for evidence to include the RFE response along with the I-907 request for premium processing. They also ask that a request be filed with the service center that currently has the petition, for cases where a transfer has happened, and in these cases, a copy of the transfer notice should also be enclosed for most timely processing.
