Clarification for travel outside US with valid L1B before Oct 1st and with L1-H1B COS Approved


Recommended Posts



I work for an employer A with a valid L1 B Visa till April 2014.

H1 B COS has been approved for me for the same employer with this year's H1B CAP Quota.

I have received my petition.


I need to go out of country for a personal emergency from end of August to Mid of September.

Will there be an issue when i try to re-enter US. Will a new I-94 being issued affect my COS getting activated from October 1st.

Please suggest if its safe to travel and come back and no issues would happen to my COS happening on Oct 1st or are there any implications if i travel outside before Oct 1st even though i am on a valid L1B Visa.
