My online status shows new card was ordered on 09/27/2016. Until yesterday it was showing case was received so case approval date is my guess. I didn't do any expedite request anything. I am signed up for electronic and text message notification of my case, however I didn't receive any update about new card was ordered.
Did you filed your OPT Extension with your employer or with a consultancy company? I've heard that the laws have changed and one cannot file their extension with a consulting firm? Do you know anything about this?
Hey BabuofUsa, Can you please tell me when did you receive the first email/message from USCIS after you sent the documents? i.e. how long did it take? I sent my documents for STEM Extension last friday..
USCIS received 080516, I think I received email and text on 080916 that my case has been routed to Potomac, then on 081516 I received I-797c that my case is under review. I haven't received my card until today.
Thank you babuofusa. I hope I get the response this week..My concern is: I send the document by USPS Express to Phoenix Arizona 85034 and the tracking shows it was signed by j lopez. Did it occur for you too?
nope, anything on yours? i think they are taking 2 weeks from the date of approval for the card to deliver. they have done mass approval i guess and card production is not able to keep up with them so delayed.
I spoke with a tier-2 officer this morning, he said my card was produced yesterday (10/11/16) and it will be mailed soon. He said call back Friday (10/14/16) to get a tracking number. However I got USPS email that a shipment is my way, I am guessing this is the card.
see my timeline in the post itself and 2nd comment for the documents I sent. I was also signed up for e-mail and text message alert for the status of my case but got that only once when the case was routed to Potomac (YSC). Good Luck to everyone else for a service very unpredictable....
