  • OPT Validity for 10 months - experience

    I got my Card after 3 months of initial review(@ California Center). The expiry date is 10 months from the start date. I thought it would be for [I]12 months[/I] from the start date(i.e, card production date). Called USCIS and reported the case. Got a mail from USCIS asking me to send the card, I765 application and a letter stating the error. Did that, got back the card within 10 days. No changes were made, I now have OPT valid for 10 months. Reason given was:
    The expiry date will be:
    1) [B]12 months from card production date[/B]
    [B][I]OR[/I][/B]
    2) [B]14 months from date of Graduation.[/B]
    [B][U]WHICHEVER IS EARLIER[/U].[/B]
    In my case, option 2 was earlier. I was not aware of the second one. Incase if you got a validty period of less than 12 months, this might be the reason.

    [I]Good Luck All... [/I]
