L1A --> H1B --> L1A - Portability questions


Recommended Posts

Please help with some insights on my situation:


Case Details:
I was on active L1A status as of April 1, 2013 (Employer A)
April 1, 2013 - I applied H1B as COS from L1A to H1B (Employer B) under premium.
April 22, 2013 - H1B COS approved (I-94 valid from Oct 1, 2013 to Apr 4, 2016)
July 31, 2013 - H1B re-opened (Notice of intent to revoke).
Nov 14, 2013 - Exit & Re-entered USA using my L1 A Petition & L1 A VISA and got new I-94 with L1 A status (New I-94 card valid from November 14, 2013 to October 23, 2014).


Nov 28, 2013 - H1B Intent to revoke was confirmed and H1B revoked
Dec 13, 2013 - H1B employer filed I 290 B (Notice of Appeal or motion).
April 11, 2014 - H1B approved I 797 with I 94 new notice date (April 11, 2014)-  (with I-94 attached valid from October 1, 2013 to April 4, 2016. ( Same I94 number as of old L1A(before April 1, 2013))




1. Since my initially approved H1B was re-opened with an Intent to revoke and was still pending, I exit the US border and re-entered with my L1A petition & VISA & and got a new I-94 on my L1A status (I-94 valid date from November 14, 2013). Now that my MTR of H1B is processed and my H1B is approved (with I-94 valid date from October 1, 2013)
What\'s my Visa Status now ?

If L1A, what do I need to do to get to H1B status ? Options ?

If H1B, what do I need to do to get to L1A status ? Options ?

Appreciate your help
