  • No OPT card since 120 days

    Hello Guys,
    I have applied for OPT on April 7 to Texas service center, but I have not received the card yet. I have tried to expedite my case by sending offer letter, and my case was approved. I also tried creating service request after that, since expedite request didn't helped much. None of these actions seemed to help my case. Finally I have faxed over my documents to my local senator office in Washington. Its been two weeks since I sent those documents. My current status shows that my card is production. However, its been 27 days now since its in production. Below is the timeline of my case. Does anybody here is facing same situation ?

    April 7- application received
    June 5- alien registration number was changed
    June 25- Expedite request approved
    July 11- Card went into production

      Guys,
      If you have CPT and you applied for OPT, after your CPT you are eligible to work for 180 days if your case is in review with USCIS. You have to show your valid I20 with you employer name on it, USCIS notice to your employer.

      So don't worry, you can go ahead and join your jobs.

          Are talking about stem extension opt? I don't think it is valid in case of initial opt. Please elaborate.

              Yeah, I did. It is legal to work for 180 days when your case is in review with uscis.

                Nope. I am talking about CPT to opt conversion stage. I am on CPT till last may. CPT expired on May 25th. No work authorization from then and my opt case is still in review with uscis. My employer asked me to submit my i20 with his name on it and the receipt notice. He also mentioned that I'm in the cap gap state and can work for 180 days. FYI my employer is Amazon.

                  So under cap gap you are allowed to work because your F1b application got selected. otherwise I think you can`t work.
