H-1 stamped and L-1 also being processed


Recommended Posts


I have a bit of a complicated query. Request you to please share any information that you may have on this. 

I am employed in Company A for the past 11 years. CompanyA processes very few H1s and L1s. Hence, I applied for a H1 through Company B. My H1 and H4(for my family) was approved and stamped. Now to retain me, Company A has started the process of filing for an L1A through their immigration firm. I have informed the immigration firm that I have a valid H-1 that has never been travelled on.


My question is:

1. Can my H-1 be converted to an L-1 and if so what is the time taken under premium processing, regular mode?

If the above is not possible, can you please advise the process going forward.

Do let me know if you require any additional info from my side on this. Any info on this would be of great help.
Thanks in advance
