Working from India on OPT during Pandemic


Recommended Posts

I graduated from college this year and I am currently working on OPT in California. My company has allowed me work from home for the rest of this year due to the pandemic. I plan to go home to India in Oct and work from there. My H-1B has also been approved and be available starting Oct. I have 2 questions

1. Can I work from home in India From Oct- Jan while I am  on my OPT or will it cause any issues with my status

2. Can I travel back to the US on OPT in Jan or will I need to change my status to H-1B and get H-1B visa stamped on my passport.
