Hello all,

My H1 b got denied on specialty occupation reason, my employer applied MTR on nov 18 . My employer is not sharing the new reciept number. My old reciept shows the below status. Can anyone let me know what does this mean. Is my case got re-opened or not am in confusion.

On December 8, 2014, we transferred your Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker, Receipt Number WAC#, to another USCIS office. That office now has jurisdiction over your case. We sent you a notice that explains why we moved your case. Please follow the instructions in the notice. If you do not receive your notice by January 7, 2015, please go to www.uscis.gov/e-request to request a copy of the notice. If you move, go to www.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address.

Hello All,

 

Firstly, Congratulations to all who were unlucky and got lucky through MTR approvals.

 

I also travel in the same state and below are the details:

 

  1. On 07-Oct-14 Denial notice in regards to the reason of Specialty occupation
  2. On 10-Nov-14 MTR raised and New receipt number issued

From then there are no change of status both in Old and New receipt numbers. I can see people whose MTRs are raised after Nov 10th,  got reopened and got decisions too for few.. not sure why its getting delayed in my case... Is their any one who is in the same situation???

 

Please respond? Lets hope for the best... Thanks

My Old Receipt number still shows old denial message. Reading other posts, it looks like old receipt number was also updated. Is there any timeline as when will be my old receipt number will be updated with latest info and do you know how long it is going to take from here on. Your help is much appreciated.

Hi Sandeep,

 

What was your denial reason? Have you or you employer got chance to call USCIS for the status as it is more than 90 days...

I called my attorney to raise a service request but they told me that it needs at least 6 months to raise a service request. Denial reason is my education is not related to current job.

I think you can follow up after 90 days not necessarily 6 months. If you look through some of the earlier posts on this forum or another MTR forum on murthy there are some examples from ppl who raised SR themselves

The usual time of response if 3 months. If you do not see any updates by then you can have your employer raise a service request.

Yeah i have to request for the same. But looking at few cases, it seems it takes more time than 3 months time.

Hello All,

 

I am on the same boat as many of you. I am posting the timeline of updates.

 

July 2 2014: H1 Denied

July 16 2014: Opened MTR

July 23 2014: Received receipt stating Case was received.

 

Below are the statuses of both receipts.

 

Old receipt: On July 2, 2014, we denied your Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker, Receipt Number EAC1413450213. We mailed you a decision notice that explains why we denied your case and your options. Please follow the instructions in the notice. If you do not receive your denial notice by July 17, 2014, please go to www.uscis.gov/e-request to request a copy of the notice. If you move, go towww.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address.

 

New receipt: On July 23, 2014, we received your Form I-290B, Notice of Appeal to the Commissioner, Receipt Number EAC1490268276, and sent you the receipt notice that describes how we will process your case. Please follow the instructions in the notice. If you do not receive your receipt notice by August 22, 2014, please call Customer Service at 1-800-375-5283. If you move, go towww.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address.

 

It has been in the Initial review since July 23.

 

My attorney requested for update since it has been 6 months. Received a I-797C, Notice of Action. Below is the information in that notice.

 

"This courtesy notice is to advise you of action taken on this case. The official notice has been mailed to authorized representative. Any relevant documentation included in the notice was also mailed as part of the official notice.

I hit the send button fast.

 

Continuation of I797-C information in the previous post

 

"After review we have decided to treat the appeal filed in the above case as a Service motion to reopen or Service motion to reconsider. You will receive a notice under separate cover once all action has been completed"

 

What to expect? I am confused because status of both receipts are same since 6 months.

Good that you case got reopened... So far I understand, there are two steps once you request for MTR...

 

Step 1: They will re-open your old case are start looking into it.

 

Step 2: Based on your application and other documents along with MTR, they will analyse and take decision. 

 

Not sure as how much time they might take to give the decision. ALL THE BEST :)
