View Full Version : OPT renewal and e-verify

04-25-2009, 11:21 PM
Hi All,

My wife is on her first year of OPT, she is masters in STEM so she is eligible for 17 month extension.

In-order to re-new her OPT she needs get herself e-verified. However, her employer said thay they are not registered for e-verify system.
My question is
- Is it possible to renew OPT without e-verification, if yes how?
- What are options in that case if her employer does not e-verify?

Please advise, Thanks,

I'm sorry but your company has to be registered with everify for your wife to be eligible for OPT extension. Explain to the employer it is a simple free process which is quite similar to filling out an I9. If he is still unwilling to do it, find any other employer already registered or who is willing to register for everify. Most big companies with over 100 employees are registered with everify.
