Hello , I traveled to India Mid- January due to family emergency , I had to leave the country because of this unavoidable circumstance. When I was in India my first OPT expired , but I has applied for my STEM OPT extension 50 days ago where I was in states and case is still pending.
When I made my trip back to the U.S, whereby the CBP officers stopped my entry and mentioned that I’m technically out of status because my case is still pending so I’m not allowed for reenter US . The officers asked me to withdraw my application and to go back to my home country and officers booked my flight to India, they written a code with black ink 212a7AiI on my visa.
I received my EAD CARD and the STEM OPT i20 . I’m in India right now and I would like to know the implications from the circumstances above. Do i have to fill DS-160 form and how i have to go for visa stamp again . can anyone help me please .
