H1 Cap Exempt Queries


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

A Cap exempt employer is going to file my H1B with change of status this year and I had following questions-

1/ Is it possible that I can start working for them before Oct 2014? Can A Cap Exempt petition be approved with a date earlier than 1st Oct?

2/ I am currently on a L1 visa valid till 2015.If I go back to India and come back on L1 visa instead before Oct, will change of status become invalid and I can continue to work for my present employer on L1?

3/If in Apr 2015, A Cap non exempt H1B petition is filed by an Cap subject employer for me in April 2015, Can i start working for them as soon as they file it/ or it gets approved and not wait till Oct 2015?(Portability?)

 

 

Thanks a lot for the help in advance.

 

Thanks,

Aman

1. Yes.

2. You need to join H1B employer after COS approval. To continue with L1 employer you need to exit and enter with a valid L1 visa and I797.

3. No.
