Optins if 485 is not filed before visa expiry

Recommended Posts

Hi - I am on L1A with 7 year completing in July 2019. I 140 is approved. Priority date July 2018. Since EB1 is not current cannot file 485. If EB1 does not become current by July 2019 what will be my options?

Your employer , based on an approved i-140, can file a cap exempt h1b petition requesting change of status to H1. They can do that now while you have a valid i-94.

Sorry. If you have not had a cap subject h1 approved, you cannot change status to H1. Your only option is to convert to CP and get an IImigration visa abroad.
