I need to get my H1B Reactivate (currently on F1). How long will it take without premium processing?

I had a previous H1 B visa but I quit my job and moved countries. I came back to the US on F1 visa. Now I am graduating in May and want to get my old H1 B activate. How long does the process take? Will I still able to do it in premium processing? Thank you.

The normal process may take about 6 to 8 months based on current estimates. The premium processing for H1B is ending this week. After which, the normal process is set to improve and can expect to get your decision sooner than 6 months.
