  • Opt extension decision still in initial review

    Hi i applied for my opt extension on Nov 22 2013. My opt is ending Feb 5th 2014. But it is still showing initial review. Can i continue to work after Feb 5 th till i get the decision. I have been working for the same client since April 2013. How much more time is it going take? Please give some suggestions.
    Thank you

    Yes u can work till the decision is pending or 180 days from the end of your initial opt..whichever is earlier....
    You will have to contact your HR and tell your problem..they will ask you to submit the I-765 receipt number (for confirmation that you filed your extension in timely manner). I did the same thing

            you can work unto 180 days when your application is in pending status. my opt ended dec 2013. My OPT extension was received by USCIS in Oct 25th and I got approved last week. It usually takes 3 months to get your OPT stem application approved

              Yes you can work for 180 days after your original OPT has expired and your extension application is pending approval. The receipt notice USCIS mailed you is good for this. It could take upto 3 months to get a decision, but it typically comes sooner.
