Need to know if L1 stay will counted against H1B max out date


Recommended Posts


I want to know if my stay during L1B will count against my current H1B even though I stayed outside U.S for two years and had filed a fresh cap subject H1B petition.

Following are my details - 

I left U.S on 01/31/2015 and stayed in India till 01/13/2017 ( almost 2 years). My H1B visa was issued in Oct 2016.

I want to know if the two years on L1B will be counted against the current H1B duration. Will my max out date be November 2020 ?

Visa Type             US Entry Date     US Exit Date

L1B                        06/12/2012        08/24/2013

L1B                        01/14/2014         01/31/2015

H1B                        1/14/2017          current
