Hello,

I am on L1A Visa and wanted to have a H1B applied. My L1A visa is expiring on 31-Mar-2013 but my I94 is valid till 2015. My question was if H1B is applied then when would my L1A status cease to exist. will it be at the start of my H1B which will be in october or will it be on the April / May when the H1B is approved.

If H1B was filed as COS then you will be on H1B status from 1st Oct or from the start date mentioned in I-129. If it was approved as consular processing it would be when you exit and enter US on H1B visa.
