OPT process?!

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am a F1 student and applying for OPT based on the F1 visa. I applied on May 27, NSC received my form on May 29, and the notice date is May10. They sent me a NOA about the check. I sent a couple expedite requests and all got rejected. I called the hotline today and see my case status and what the heck that the person I talked to tell me I will need a biometric appointment and he went ahead and send a service request to schedule. He said I did not get any notice after 30 days I filed the form and I would have to send the service request. I told him I got a NOA about the check and I dont think I need that service, he said I have to and asked me to write the ID# of the request that he just sent. He also told me I will need to wait another 45 days to receive any notice. If I didnt get any respond after that 45 days, just call them back again. I am so pissed and worried. I really think I dont need the biometric because it is for immigration and I am not doing the immigration thing.

Does an OPT based I-765 really need the biometric service? Can I canceled the service request?

**Anyone has experience that before?

My employment date is July 1 and I have already postpone my start day once.

Sorry! I filed on Apr 27, they got it Apr 29

No, I had no biometrics.

That's what I told him that I don't need one. It has been almost 2 month and I don't know what to do with that biometric thing. I hope it will not affect the processing time of my case.
