  • Pre-OPT card issued instead of Post-OPT

    Hi all,

    I applied for POST-OPT card (EAD card) and instead of that I received pre-OPT card. When I earlier sent my package to USCIS I had made a typo in mentioning OPT as I chose the pre-OPT option. So I immediately called USCIS to make the changes (Post OPT instead of Pre OPT) and they asked me to post a letter mentioning the change. I did that and in a couple of weeks I got my card but it says Pre-OPT on it..., they never changed it. I called USCIS again mentioning the mistake and they asked me to wait 15 days to know the decision. Now can I work on my pre-OPT card? My employer ran E-verify and it went through and they say it wont be a problem. But I do not want any problems with immigration later on as I already graduated and cant work on pre-OPT!!
    Please help...

    Thanks a lot in advance!
