Hi I am new to this forum!

 

My initial H1 was denied saying not happy with employee contract attached. Where as all my colleagues are being approved with the same contract which is attached by my company.

 

Now the struggle started.

 

We applied for MTR on Dec12th with additional letter from our company manager. Got new receipt number.

 

When I am tracking with new receipt it says

 

On January 16, 2014, your name was updated relating to your I290B, NOTICE OF APPEAL TO THE COMMISSIONER.

 

When I am tracking with old receipt number it says

 

On January 17, 2014, we mailed you a notice informing you that your I129, PETITION FOR A NONIMMIGRANT WORKER, was reopened. If you have not received the notice within 30 days of the date above, please call customer service at 1-800-375-5283 for further assistance. If you move, please use our Change of Address online tool to update your case with your new address.

 

 

Can some one please help me to understand this??

@ Thejas28 : Yes, we too raised a request with VSC last month and got the same reply that there is no fixed time frame for I-290B.

     My MTR is dated August 28th.

@thejas28 and mtr_h1b - when I raised an e-request, I got a reply that due to privacy act, a beneficiary cannot be communicated the progress. I raised an e-request as 'applicant/petitioner' but used my email id. Is it how you also raised e-request?

@H1Dreamer: My attorney called the customer support # and raised the service request. I never tried it online.

Ask your attorney to contact their helpline and escalate the request to tier-2 officer.

If you try to call them, they are not going to create service request on your behalf.

They don't even discuss the details unless the attorney / employer calls them.

No Updates guys still in same status.....Initial Review!  By reviewing this thread it looks like CSC might be processing Sep MTR's and VSC processing June/July MTR's. Anyways I am hoping we all should get response on our MTRs soon.

 

I wish each and everyone of you Loads of Luck!!!

 

Thanks!

 

Reddy

I called my attorney and he said, he wouldn't call USCIS,

He said for appeal cases, it takes indefinite amount of time and he was not budging at all.

Hi Guys,

 

I had filled notice of appeal to Uscis at CSC on sep 27. I got a new receipt number and its in initial review status as of now. The initial review status shows that "On November 7, 2013, we transferred your I290B, NOTICE OF APPEAL TO THE COMMISSIONER, to your local USCIS Office for further processing. The new office has jurisdiction over your case and will send you a decision as soon as processing is complete or you will be notified if further information or action is needed." 

Anyone has seen this above, what does this mean and how much more does the processing takes? From this forum I observe that most of cases are motion to reconsider than reappeal. I suppose appeal takes more time, what is the average time you are seeing response for appeal?

 

I had raised an e request 3 weeks earlier and the status of e request says that i don't have privileges to view the status of petition, Therefore my employer had raised an e request yesterday, I will update once i get response back from them.

I raised an e-request and even spoke to the USCIS folks. They say that VSC has not specified any processing time for MTR's. I raised an e-request but got a mail saying that i do not qualify for an update. God alone knows whats gonna happen.

 

Anyone else VCS? how long is the wait for MTR?

Hi Tejas,

 

I am from VSC as well. Filed MTR in november.. No reply yet..Still waiting :(

 

I have seen couple of guys in this forum who tried to raise the service requests by themselves.. Have you tried that?

 

When was your MTR filed?

 

Thanks,

My employer has filled an e request and he got an email from USCIS saying that the case has been moved to AAO, so they asked us to call them. He called them at 703-224-4501 and left the message about the case and requesting to expedite. This number directly takes to Voice Mail to leave.

I am so tired of waiting for this APPeal.. Not sure when they will make a decision...

 

Are any of you planning to file H1B again this year? 

 

I am trying Hard to find an employer, and every employer is asking following questions:

 

What is your experience - 3 years

What is your visa status- I would say F1

Do you Have CPT/OPT?------ When I say No.. They would ask why not.. go get one...... I would say.. this is my second semester and after that only I can apply for CPT...

They are saying.. take CPT then visit us..

 

I am so frustrated. When I had OPT and I was working for a client.. My h1B got rejected and now.. I am trying to find an employer who would sponsor my visa.. without asking me to take cpt and stuff.. This seems impossible..

 

Is anyone else going through these issues?  Appreciate your inputs and if possible let me know how to find a new employer.. :)

 

Thanks
