OPT Extension is Pending- Changed the Employer.


I was a contractor with Company A and my OPT Extension is applied on same on July 3rd. But I left my Employer for some reason on August 21st since I got Full Time job with Company B.

Company B is ready to take me on OPT. and I will let school know about my employer change and get my New OPT I-20.

My question is: My OPT Extension is in Initial Review. Will there be any Problem because I changed my Employer? Or It will be updated with latest I-20 from school.

Please let me know

You will not have any problem at all. The OPT extension will be approved based on your previous employer details. Check with your DSO to confirm this.

But make sure your new employer is e-verified.
