I was working on F1 OPT from February 2019 through September 2020. I resigned from my job and left the US in September 2020 to India due to COVID-19 situation back home.
I have my F1 stamp still valid until May 2022 and EAD card is valid until February 2022.
My I-20 form has date of Jan 2022 as well. During this time, I have been working in India for a different company as my company in the US did not allow transfer to India.
Things are better now back at home and does not require my presence. I am now wondering if I can re-enter the US given this information and if I am able to find a new employer. Can I continue on STEM OPT in this case?
Please let me know if anyone has been through this kind of situation and what you think. I have not voilated any laws or regulations during my stay in the US.
