    Yes, your update shows it has been approved, congrats :) you're the 3rd person to clear MTR. Everyone else waiting, stay positive, your turn will also come soon as you place an erequest request after 90 days.

    MTR processing time for denied case

    My coworker was a CSC as well, and after the case was re-opened there was no update for almost 3 months and so my employer called up USCIS and also sent an email, on that day itself the case got approved. As per your status update they should decide in 30 days, if not then either you/your employer/attorney call up USCIS to insist on an update on the case. My coworker's MTR was in 2012, where the processing times were longer than now in 2013, and also no service request was involved, so your case is different, and wont take so much time. Be possitive and let's hope for the best and a quick result.

    MTR processing time for denied case

    For me it was straight approval on the old case number. One of my coworkers had an MTR last year, and had this experience of case "re-open". I read/was told that this is how MTR is usually done, even my employer was surprised at my straight approval. You are on the right track, it's your service request that helped pick your case back up again. You have waited a long time, hope u get it! Good luck.

    MTR processing time for denied case

    @ViswaKavi For MTR date I wrote the date my package was sent/filed ie 29th aug, and yes the mailing zipcode is your h1 address. Your details are correct. They say to file erequest only after 90 days, which is the maximum processing time for MTR cases given by USCIS in their website. So if you are still within that time frame not sure if the request will be placed or not, but you can try i guess. Good luck :)

    MTR processing time for denied case

    @Viswakavi: Thanks :) yeah MTR waiting is the hardest part. Here are the details of my case:- Service center: CSC Applied H1B: Apr 5, 2013 (Regular Quota, premium) --> RFE received: Apr 22, 2013 regarding E-E relationship (lack of client letter) --> RFE Response: Jul 22, 2013 H1B Denial : Jul 31, 2013 Deadline to raise MTR : Sep 2, 2013 --> MTR Filed: Aug 29, 2013 (with I290B and filing fees Motion to Re-open) Documents newly submitted with MTR: Client letter, and prime vendor contract agreement w/ client, plus an explanation letter stating why couldn't submit client letter initially during RFE (client was refusing due to policy) MTR package Address: Phoenix service center (acc to the h1 denial form instruction) Sep 4, 2013: USCIS sent receipt with new case number Oct 11, 2013: USCIS updated against new case number "On October 11, 2013, your address was changed relating to the I290B, NOTICE OF APPEAL TO THE COMMISSIONER that you filed" After 90 days... Dec 2, 2013: Raised erequest with new case number, form type I20B (according to my case it is motion to re-open), mailing zip code is our home address that was given as mailing address in h1b. Dec 9, 2013: Old case status shows approved, new case number still same update on oct 11 2013. Uscis did not check anything with the client, it was a smooth approval. I did not change client, but even if you have to it is ok, can file for ammendment. OPT wouldve ended next month. It is necessary to maintain proper legal status on MTR as cap-gap is only valid if the h1b gets approved in the end.

    MTR processing time for denied case

    Yes the wish worked for me :), you will get the visa as well, dont worry! Yah with this thread i hope people who are unfortunate enough to end up in this situation feel a bit more possitive and know when to expect results etc. The receipt number i used is the new one that was given for the MTR as the form subtype is I290B Motion To Reconsider according to my case, and followed the remaining procedures.

    MTR processing time for denied case

    GREAT NEWS GUYS!! I got the h1b approved! Keep waiting and hope for best! USCIS received and gave receipt on sep 4th, i sent on aug 29th. I had sent to Arizona phoneix service center. On oct 11 they rerouted to CSC where my intial h1b went. I placed a service request and immiediately in a week i have the result! I had placed the request as the applicant through the website (did not call up), and did not consult attorney or employer. After 90 days we can do that by ourself. Go here https://egov.uscis.gov/e-Request/Intro.do and follow the instruction and you are done. My old case number says "On December 9, 2013, we mailed you a notice that we have approved this I129 PETITION FOR A NONIMMIGRANT WORKER" New case number still shows "Initial review" I will get the details on the approval and post an update on it as well, how many years etc and regarding COS.

    MTR processing time for denied case

    Yes i have raised a request. USCIS has said within 30 days time they will let me know what is going on with my case. They didnt exactly say they will give a result, but just an update on the progress. Nothing changed so far, status still shows the same 'Initial Review'.
