H1B status change on SEVP Website?

Samsung IsitIMP?
Apr 15, 2018 83 Comments

Hi,Recently USCIS sent an invitation email to OPT students to signup for their SEVP portal (https://sevp.ice.gov/opt/#/login). Any of you know whether the status gets changed in this portal if H1B petition picked up in the lottery? I suppose this portal is same as the one DSO use to update student records.

    What status? I see nothing here. Seems like just a portal to update your address, employer, etc

      @XoQA40: So you had a new I-20 printed out and it didn’t have the new end date of 09/30? How is that possible? The end date in the SEVP portal should be the same as in SEVIS, so i would expect 09/30 to show up on the new I-20. How do you explain why the end date changed to 09/30 on the portal then?

      According to this the only phase when the cap gap is set to Sept 30th is when USCIS update the h1b status to pending ... It's clearly documented in a table in the above dhs doc expanding about cap gap periods.

      So with all this I am confused :(

      @naruro1546, yes, and pending H1b status means that the petition was selected in the lottery. So I’m pretty sure updated end date to 09/30 on SEVP portal means petition was selected in lottery. That’s also the consensus on various forums I’ve seen. So congrats on being selected!

      Here is what I see. This was updated on 16th. My new I20 was generated on 17th. I am yet to receive the physical copy of the new I20. But my DSO confirmed that it is not a cap gap I20.

      Did I understand this correctly? Your stem OPT ends after 30 Sep, hence no cap-gap extension needed, and therefore no change on the student SEVP portal.

      In that case, fair enough.

      Yes you are correct

      Can you please check if there was any update from “sevis” in the “history” section of the SEVP portal? I am seeing this. So want to check if this is an indication of selection of h1b.

    So this extension of dates is a hint that our petition is picked in lottery right ?

    Thanks.. I see no change on my portal.. question for ppl who have seen change in date.. what was end date prior to change? In my case end date is 2019 march.. will there be any change on my portal if I get selected?

      In your case it won’t change. It only changes to those whose OPT end date was prior to 9/30

  • Intel soapywater
    My SEVP Portal updated today to 09/30. So ppl should wait and expect the change over sometime. But still not sure if this update means h1b lottery got picked.

    • Nokia jVck26
      Yes I did ( haven’t sent docs to USCIS yet) , my DSO updated it from his end , which says Future STEM and has end date in 2020. After two days of my university issuing me STEM OPT I-20, I saw my initial OPT date got moved to September 30,2018.

    • Cisco / Eng ! Abcd
      So if I understood correctly, you have two different opts showing up on sevp portal (oje active and the other one is in future). But the date of the active one got pushed to 30th September?
      Apr 29, 2018
    • Nokia jacksock
      That’s is correct

  • Nokia jVck26
    My end date of Initial OPT authorization changed to September 30, I also read the notes on sevp portal about the effects of H1b change of status petition on f1 opt folks which is quite clear , wanna know how long it takes to hear from attorney?

    It’s brand new, so nobody knows.

    Because petitions belong to the sponsoring employer, USCIS can be frustratingly non-transparent to the beneficiaries.

    H1B receipt received but sevp portal not updated, my opt ends in august, anybody has this ?
    Apr 26, 2018 7
    • At times there might be issues with Sevis ... So check with ur DSO and see if the entry is updated to Sept 30th or else ask him/her to raise a datafix ticket with Sevis.

      I have the same case. Does the USCIS case status website show anything for you when you enter the receipt number?
      Apr 27, 2018
    • USCIS website shows that you petition has been received on April 12 and receipt notice mailed, should contact then if you don't receive receipt notice by May 12th.

      I have the same, USCIS case status shows an error, i guess this is not an issue since lot of ppl are experiencing the same

      Wait until you know for sure. However, you’d be good to prepare. Travel the places you want to travel, and start selling anything you don’t need on eBay (rather than just giving it all away before you leave).

      @soapywater Don't be disheartened yet. I saw my end date change to 09/30 today. Not sure if that means a lottery pick like the thread says; but one can be hopeful.

    Hi, thank you for all the updates. My OPT ends on 7/21 & my SEVIS portal doesn't show any change in dates. Does that mean I have not been picked or should I still waiting?

      “Keep waiting” is also what Democrats will (indirectly) tell you while you wait for a green card lol.

    But if one is already on stem opt with validity more than 30th September , then I don’t think there would be any updates in the portal.
