Is it possible to consider my EB2 PD to EB1 category ? pls advice...

If you are or recently have been in the U.S. on a H-1B visa, then you do not qualify for (1) a L-1A visa, and (2) the EB-1C "multinational manager or executive" preference category.  For both a L-1A visa and the EB-1C preference category you have to be working for the sponsoring employer outside the U.S. in a manager or executive role for a period of time before you transfer with the employer to work in the U.S. in a similar manager or executive role.

Let's be clear, there are many nuances to US immigration law. In fact there is a possible scenario when someone who has been in the United States for some time in H1B status might qualify to change to L1 status. But the critical point to remember about that is to consult an attorney.


You are right .. I am doing a research on it now, will keep all posted my findings ....
