L1 to H1

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

My background:

 

 

 

Company A

Current Visa : L1-B

Expiry date: 05/25/2013

L1B extension filed Date: 05/24/2013

L1B RFE reply Date: 09/05/2013

 

Company B

H1B filing Date: 04/08/2013

H1B request start date: 10/01/2013

H1B RFE reply Date: 09/05/2013

 

 

Company A filed my L1B and Company B filed H1B.  Currently both the Visas got RFE and sent reply to both today.  I-94 expired on 05/24/2013.

 

My question is,

 

Can I legally stay in USA if my L1B extension is denied next week and until my H1B is approved?

 

Thanks in advance

No you can not and have to leave immediately as there is no grace period.

Since OP's H1 is still pending, he can stay until a decision is made on H1, but he can't work until H1 approval or Oct 1st, whichever is later.

I am sorry. I did not notice RFE on H1B
