New H1B


Recommended Posts

My H1-B is expiring next year end, but my company sent me to India for work purposes. I would be here for a year. They are going to take me back on L1-A Visa. By the time they are going to apply for L1-A Visa my H1 6 yr period still does not expire. (I might have 2-3 months left)

Can they still apply for L1 if I am out of country for 365 days?

Also i might have to travel to USA for few days to get some training. Would the 365 day period break and new cycle starts if I travel to USA for training?

Is there any way I could travel to USA and not effect the 365 day out of country rule?

Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks!
