h1b maximum duration of 6 years


Recommended Posts


I was in the USA on L1A visa from Jan 2010 - July 2013. In July 2013, I left USA and I got H4 stamping done in India. I am planning to apply for my H1B now.

Between July 2013 to September 2014, I came to the USA twice, each time for one week (so for a total of 15 days). My question is whether the duration of July 2013 - Sep 2014 be counted towards 1 year duration that a person has to spend outside USA so that L1A duration is not counted towards the maximum duration of 6 years on H1B.


Please advise.
