L1A Blanket Stamping while holding valid H1B for same employer

Recommended Posts

Does existing unexpired stamped H1B visa get cancelled by VO if I apply new L1A blanket for the same employer. I am working out of Canada. My H1B is valid until dec 2019 but my employer want me to apply L1A.

Any experience by others for the same scenario.

Thanks...will they cancel even in case the new visa is not granted?

They cancel existing visas before the new one is processed. That's just what they do.

And that of course implies that if there is an issue with the new visa, you won't have any visa. Just a fact of life. Make sure that everything with your new visa application is legitimate, have all documents with you, etc.

Thanks for the reply. I read somewhere that one is allowed to have 2 visas of different categories hence thought that are they going to cancel H1 visa in L1 stamping.
