Immigration Issues/Premium processing of Cap exempt H1B petition

Question
Dear Sir,

If my H1B petition (transfer + extension based on approved I140) is filed under premium processing and I happen to receive an RFE, then upon responding to RFE will my RFE response be also adjudicated with 15 days window soon after USCIS receives my response?
Or premium processing option just guarantees initial response from USCIS in 15 days?

Thanks!

Answer
Hi,

Filing through premium processing mandates USCIS response within 15 days: approval, denial, or RFE ("request for evidence").

If an RFE is issued, the USCIS has an additional 15 days from the date of receiving the RFE response to make a decision (generally approval or denial).
