Premium processing on re opened case


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I applied H1B last year  and it picked in lottery.

I upgraded to premium processing, then received RFE because of no client letter and it got denied.


Later, I obtained the client letter and filed MTR in june 2015.

March 2016, MTR approved and case re opened.

Then they sent second RFE requesting updated client letter, we submitted response  and USCIS received response on march 20th 2016.


Since , then no response from them


Can i upgrade to premium on this case now?


As it went through premium processing last year and denied, can we apply premium processing second time for re opened case?

Sometime in the past I read on web that appeals of denial decisions, and that includes Motions to Reopen/Reconsider cannot be expedited. 

Don't take my opinion as legal advise. 


MTR already approved.

It is Premium processing for re opened case, now it is at state USCIS RFE response received.

My H1B transfer approved on july 17 2016 and on aug 15 2016 again USCIS case status changed to "re-opened" .

My employer applied H1B transfer for xxx client and but later i joined yyy client as project is long term and my employer didn't file amendment as both xxx and yyy clients are in same MSA.

I am not sure if it is a system error or really case re-opened.

Please let me know if any one has faced similar issue in past
