  • OPT - 1 month since applied but can't check online status

    My opt application was received on May 22 and I received the received the receipt on May 27 from Nebraska Service Center. It's been more than one month but I still can't check the status online.

    I get the following error message-
    Your case can not be found at this time in My Case Status. Please check your receipt number and try again. If you need further assistance, please call the National Customer Service Center at 1.800.375.5283.

    I tried calling the USCIS help line but they have asked me to wait for 45 days before they can do anything about it. Is it usual for taking this long for online status to update. I have a job offer from August 18 and I am bit worried that processing may take longer. Can someone please advise what should I do.

        Do not worry. I've not heard about this issue on OPT or STEM Extension but i had this all the time during my H1B processing. The status was updated the day my application was approved. Since its again the same USCIS I believe it should not be an issue. Also i read on desiopt itself that several H1B applicants has the same problem. They contacted USCIS and got the receipt number updated. Hope it helps.
