OPT Application remotely during COVID


Recommended Posts

I am a STEM student graduating in May. I am currently in India since the school classes are online due to COVID. Normally, the individual needs to be in the US to apply for the OPT. I am trying to understand if I should plan to travel to US to apply for the OPT or if it would be acceptable to apply remotely (submit a signed scanned application).

Would you recommend travelling to the US to apply for the OPT or can I apply form India? Do you see concerns / risk of OPT rejection if I apply while I am in India.

Thank you. Would appreciate your guidance here.
