USCIS issued an announcement stating that it will begin adjudicating H-1B cap petitions filed with Premium Processing Service on April 27, 2015.

During the H-1B cap filing period, however, USCIS commonly adjusts its Premium Processing Service to accommodate for the volume of submissions. Based on the USCIS announcement, H-1B cap petitions submitted with Premium Processing Service may expect to be approved, denied or issued a request for additional evidence by May 11, 2015.
