Will a student OPT EAD denial create any future immigration problems?

San Jose, CA |
Filed under: F-1 visa for students


I am on F1 and I just got news of a denial for my I765 application.
The reason for denial is that I had an approved EAD from before at the same level (masters)
Though I know that it shudnt but to be sure, will this impact any future immigration(eg applying for an EAD coz of a pending I485 etc.)??

  2. Depends on what you said on this EAD application - hopefully nothing untrue. Generally an OPT denial in and of itself should not be a problem for getting future EADs based on other grounds.
