With the new USCIS rules and recent changes, how long should OPT application take on an average to process?

P.S: I know it’s case by case basis but on an average how long is it taking people currently to get it? Could it take more than 90 days. I care more about not being able to renew my drivers license because of that.

    2 months at most. There are ways to expedite this. Talk to your congressman/congresswoman. Most of them are ready to help.

      Does it really work to contact congressman? My case has been pending for 2 months. I applied for STEM extension and really need to get the result soon.

      Yes, reach out to them. This is a route that few people use but can yield good results.

    For the processing time of OPT application, you may check I-765 processing times with the USCIS website. https://egov.uscis.gov/processing-times/#mainContent Currently, the time range it takes to process I-765 is from 3.5 months to 5.5. months at Texas Service Center. If your OPT application (I-765) is pending outside the normal processing time, you may submit an e-Request Case Inquiry to USCIS. https://egov.uscis.gov/e-Request/Intro.do
