  • Breakdown of my Mailbox: OPT Extension card Stolen

    Hi, I am on OPT extension. I got my card to my previous address. One of my friend has taken a scan copy of the card and then mailed it to my present address. But there was a break down of my mail box and someone stole the mail which had my card in it. I lost my card.

    I have a scan copy of my card but only the front side. What is that I am supposed to do to get the card back? Can I travel to India in this situation? Please suggest..

      -Other Evidence: Is a receipt showing that the employee has filed for a new employment authorization document acceptable as evidence of continuing eligibility for employment?

      The employer may not accept a receipt showing that the employee has filed for an extension or an initial document. Receipts for applications for employment authorization can only be accepted as evidence of continuing eligibility to be employed in cases where the original document has been lost, stolen, or mutilated. In these cases, the previous document must still have been otherwise valid (still would have been within the validity period previously granted if not lost, stolen, etc.) and the employee must provide the valid replacement document
      within 90 days.
