COS from L1-B to H1-B (Cap exempt)


Recommended Posts

I was in the United States on H1-B from 2013 - 2015 (2 years). I then traveled back to my home country due to personal reasons.

I am currently employed in my home country. My employer is asking me to travel to USA on L1-B (with per diem salary paid in my home country, accommodation and others borne by the company), and has started paper works for L1-B petition.


1. Will my H1-B petition get cancelled if my L1-B petition gets approved? I have 4 years remaining on my H1-B.

2. Will I be able to change employers once I'm in the USA on L1-B, if I can get another employer who can file a cap-exempt H1-B for me?
