L1 - H1


Recommended Posts




I am currently on L1A visa and wanted to apply H1B. But my L1A visa is expiring Apr/20/2014 (same as I94).


My clarification is if am eligible to apply for H1B before I leave the country on Apr 20th ?


How many years have you spent on L1A? If more than 6 then you need to be outside US for 365 days before an employer can file a cap subject H1B petition. If you have spent less than 6 years then an employer can file a cap subject H1B petition in April 2014 and on approval you can enter US on 1st Oct 2014 with a valid H1B visa and I797. In this case you would get 6 years - years spent on L1A.
