Hello, I have applied for a OPT stem Extension on october 20th. I am still waiting for a decision from USCIS. My current passport is expiring on JUne 23 2018. I have the following questions a) If my OPT STEM extension gets approved, would my EAD date be limited only till JUne 23 as my passport expires on that day or would it be given for 2 years irrespecive of my passport expiry date? b) When I am waiting for my STEM extension, can I apply for a new passport as I would need a new passport for applying for this year's H1B?
