U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has launched a new Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) online portal that allows F-1 students participating in post-completion optional practical training (OPT) and M-1 students in practical training to update employer and personal information directly.
BAL Analysis: Use of the new portal is optional, but could be a convenient choice for eligible students. OPT students are reminded that they must report changes in their name, address, or employer, and loss of employment within 10 days of a change. SEVP has stressed that while the portal will allow students to update certain personal and employer information, it does not grant them direct access to the SEVIS system and does not affect DSOs’ ability to use the system in any way.
This alert has been provided by the BAL U.S. Practice group. For additional information, please contact email@example.com.
