I had filed for OPT extension this year, the application was 1st received by USCIS on May 11th 2015 and my I-20 was issued on Apr 11th 2015. But then they sent me the whole package back as I-765 was not signed and I did call them and checked with them will they need a new I-20 this time around and they said No.
On Aug 25th, they sent me a letter saying “Request for Evidence” - I20 not within 30 days.
My question is do I need to send the whole application again or just the new I-20.
This letter does say the following:
“Processing of your I-765 will resume upon receipt of your response”
and Also the following:
“Please submit a SEVIS I-20 that has been signed by school’s DSO within 30 days prior to filing Form - I765 and shows the SEVIS request for you optional practical training (OPT) along with the desired dates. Page 1 and 3 of the I-20 are needed for adjudication”.
Please advise. Above statement to me is confusing what do they mean by “SEVIS 1-20 that has been signed by school’s DSO within 30 days prior to filing Form - I765”…new I-20 will definitely be for current date which is later date to I765 submission.
