Use previous H1B with Approved I-140

Recommended Posts

Hi, The following is my situation. I was in USA on H1B from Feb 2005 to Sept 2010 with 2 interim visits to India. I have 600 days left on this H1B. Later after 20 months in India, I returned to USA on L1A visa in May 2012. I 2013 I applied for GC on EB2 category(I'm eligible for EB1 but company thought otherwise) and got I140 approved in March 2016.


Since my GC will not come before my L1A visa expires in 2019, I wanted to know if I could use my previous H1B and file for extension (3 Yrs +) using my approved I-140?


Are there any issues.....please advise.

Thanks for your response. What happens if I file for extension of my H1B using I140 through another company while I'm woirking on L1A with my current company? Would this make my L1A redundant and I'll have to work on my H1 with another company? I want to activate my H1B so that I can keep it as standby and start scouting for opportunities outside.....
