  • URGENT: Stolen Indian passport/F1 visa, can I apply for STEM extension?

    Hello everyone,

    I have lost all my important documents including - Indian passport, F1 Visa, EAD card, all previous I20`s. I am trying to get all my documents asap by applying for replacement/duplicate documents. I will be applying for new passport in US itself and have already asked for my latest I20 copy from my university. I am currently on OPT and it ends in February 2015. Once I have the passport and my latest I20, I will apply for the EAD card again and this time just selecting "Replacement card" check-box while doing so on form I-765. I am having a few concerns while doing all this procedure:
    1. I was wondering instead of applying for an OPT EAD card again can I get the STEM extension approval for OPT based upon all my previously submitted documents?
    2. Does the university approve my STEM extension approval even when I wont be having have my visa stamped on my new passport?
    Since I should have submitted all the documents to my university at time of my first OPT application, so they should officially have all the things and I wont need to send again.

    Please let me know what are my possible options in this scenario? All suggestions and comments are welcome.

            If ua first opt about to finish with in 120 days better go for extension application for that you need all ua documents. If ua soft copies atleast ua passport, ead card then you can request your school to get i20s.

              now thats real problem as long you are in usa and can manage photocopies of your passport it is fine however you need a police complain asap , based on which you can apply for one way passport (valid for only one unidirectional trip ) from indian embassy in usa , but be advised you will need another student visa stamp on your new passport when you go back to india, that is headache , because it wont be easy to get another stamp

                I think for new passport , you need to go to sf. And the charges are 400-500 bucks.

                        If you have copies of your lost EAD card and other old documents then you can apply for stem EAD card directly .

                        For a new F1 stamp, that's not an issue. You will be fine. Make a police complaint and take that copy for your visa appointment.
