Transfer of L1A to H1B


Recommended Posts


I'm currently on L1A visa working for company ABC. I'm planning to apply for a change of


next year from L1A to H1B. I'm not sure if I can legally do this since my L1A visa end date is 4 September 2013. My I94 end date is 1 January 2015.

Could you please let me know if I can transfer my L1A through a different employer since my L1A visa end date is before October 1.

Please note I have a valid I94 till 1 January 2015. I'm planning to apply for H1 in next year 2013.

Could you please advise me on the options for my case:

1. Can I apply for Change of Status next year or

2. Should I apply for a fresh H1B next year and travel to India and get it stamped and come back.

Kindly let me know the options that are available for me to apply for a H1B next year. I'm in desperate need of help and guidance.
