Can we change the h1B Cos approved to Consular processing after the h1bcos is approved and valid?

Recommended Posts

Can we change the approved CoS H1b to consular processing after it is approved and it is valid? Can the employer file the ammendment now to change it? The H1b cos is approved and valid for the past couple of months but we never worked with the employer yet. Thanks.


P.S - Currently he is with L1b with an employer and have this h1b Cos approved for the past 3 months but he is unaware that it was Cos and was with L1B.

Once the COS is approved, the person is in the new status.

What are the ways to retain with the L1?

Only way to retain the L1 is to travel out of the US and reenter with valid L1 visa, with new I-94. But your husband will loose the H1, and his employer have to apply again next year.  If you have applied for H4, then you have to do the same thing, otherwise you can stay on L2.
