  • EAD OPT I765 is on processing hold after 90 days

    Hi All,

    Its been more than 110 days since USCIS received my I765 OPT/EAD Application. I raised a service request and got a reply saying :

    "We have placed your case on a processing hold because the required security checks remain pending. Until we receive the results of these security checks, we cannot move forward on your case. We require the results of security checks before we make a decision on any pending case.

    We cannot predict when we will receive the results of these security checks. Please be assured that we will make every effort to make a decision in your case as soon as the security checks are complete. "

    I am really worried as my job joining date is nearing. My questions are :

    1) What does this reply exactly mean ?
    2) How many more days it might take to get my EAD after getting this reply ?
    3) Is there any way to expedite my application now ?
    4) Can my college International Programs office help me in this matter ? if yes, what should they do ?

    Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance !

      1. It means exactly what it states. All applicants must go through security check before an OPT card is issued. It is hard to tell what exactly triggers the prolonged security checks. But once there is a delay, there is little you can do.
      2. Unfortunately, once there are delays due to security checks, there is no exact timeline. Hopefully, it won’t be much longer than 1 or 2 months.
      3. No. The application can’t generally be expedited once there are security check delays. You can try though.
      4. No.
