OPT extension during government shutdown?


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, 


I have a problem that would very much appreciate any advice and knowledge from any of you: I'm a STEM MS graduate, currently working under my OPT. My company wants to join the E-verify program so that I can get my OPT extension of 17 months when the government shut down. I have about 4 months left of my OPT. My company's worrying that if the shutdown takes too long it wouldn't have enough time to process my application. I wonder if the government would have any compensation for foreigners under OPT about this? Would I get an extension of the original OPT because I'm qualified to apply for OPT extension and my company's willing to join E-Verify? Thanks very much.
