  • OPT Extension in Initial Review - Came to know about wrong e-verify number

    Hi All,

    The status of my OPT ext application is under "initial review" since last 1 month. Just now I came to know that my employer gave me wrong e-verification number. I talked to USCIS customer representative and asked them to keep my application on hold until I report right e-verification number. The customer representative asked me to get back to them with right number.

    Presently, due to shutdown my employer is not able to access online e-verify system and their e-verify phone line is also closed. So I do not have right e-verification number with me.

    [B]Are there any other steps I need to take or when govt reopens then just reporting the right e-verification number by phone will work ? [/B]

    Thank you

        E-Verify is currently unavailable due to a government shutdown.To minimize the burden on both employers and employees, the following policies have been implemented:

        -The 'three-day rule' for E-Verify cases is suspended for cases affected by the shutdown.
        -The time period during which employees may resolve TNCs will be extended. Days the federal government is closed will not count towards the eight federal government workdays the employee has to go to SSA or contact DHS. We will provide additional time once we reopen.
        -For federal contractors complying with the federal contractor rule, please contact your contracting officer to inquire about extending deadlines.
        -Employers may not take any adverse action against an employee because of an E-Verify interim case status, including while the employee’s case is in an extended interim case status due to a federal government shutdown (consult the E-Verify User Manual for more information on interim case statuses).
