  • U visa work permit

    Hi,

    I was assaulted and robbed a month back. I inquired and I'm planning to apply for U visa. My F-1 (OPT) expires on Feb 2020. I heard the wait-list for U visa itself takes 4 years. Can I get a work permit for the time before that?

    My received date is September 2014, got DA Sometime in the May or July of 2017 and received work permit end of July 2017. But you have to keep in mind the amount of applications have doubled if not tripled since then.
    Hope this helps.
