  • EB2 NIW : best time to submit petition as PhD student

    Hi,

    I am a 4th year PhD student and will graduate in next spring 2019. I want to apply for EB2 NIW petition but concerned about OPT approval during petition pending.

    Please share your experience or suggestions about the risk of OPT denial during petition pending.

    Thanks

    I applied NIW before submission of my OPT application.
    There is no issue at all. According to my lawyer,
    this is a gray area. If you have concern about it,
    you can confirm with your school's international student advisor.
    Good Luck!
