  • In India due to Family Emergency- OPT card still in Initial review.

    What would happen to my EAD and Travel?

    I had a family emergency and I have to come back to India. My OPT start date is July 10th. I didn't receive my OPT card still and it is still showing initial review.
    Will they issue me my EAD card to my university or will they stop the process since am out of the country? I am planning to travel back once I receive my OPT card!!

            I would suggest you to contact your univ and ask them to check the sevis status...If it is active or not ...then ask them suggestion accordingly...if it is active ...then call USCIS and ask them to expedite your request as you have travel issues...

              Hi
              I have similar problem
              How can we ask them to expedite it ?
              When I called them they said they will not do it unless it has something to do with US GOVT.

                When I called they said it takes 90 days for the process to be completed and then I can report a problem. They did not say anything about me being out of the country...!!!!

                  Your SEVIS doesnt get terminated because you will still be on F-1. Have someone fedex it to you when you go to India and you shoul be fine. The only problem is it's uncertain when you will get your OPT card and until then it's kinda risky to re-enter without the card.
