U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced flexible measures today for foreign students affected by delayed receipt notices for Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization. The measures will apply only to applications received on or after Oct. 1, 2020, through May 1, 2021.
Background: USCIS has recently reported delays in the issuance of receipt notices for Form I-765 for OPT for F-1 students. The agency says the delays are because of COVID-19 protocols, an increase in certain filings and postal delays, among other factors. The agency said it is implementing the flexible measures to mitigate the impact of the delays on applicants for OPT.
