L1B-H1B Total years


Recommended Posts

I stayed in US on L1B for about 3 years and returned to India in Mar 2016.


I applied for H1B and got picked up in April 2016 lottery.  (Petition was submitted as I was in India).


If everything goes through fine and I get H1B -


1) How long this H1B is valid?  Can I go for visa stamping after 1 or 2 years?  

2) If I stay in India for more than a year, will I get 6 years on new H1B?  

3)I applied for H1B through employer A in USA.  Can I transfer that H1B to my current employer in India, being in India?
