I am currently working in US in my L1 visa valid till April 20 2012. My company filed H1B ( with COS I believe). I recieved RFE and my company is working on submitting the documents.
As per my company, I will have to exit US on or before April 20 2012, if my H1B status is not recieved before that. My company suggested to process the RFE in Premium to process the case so that results come out in 15 days. If I get my H1B approved, i won't have to leave US before April 20 2012.
My question is:
1. Is it that my H1B and COS gets approved if filed in premium?
2. I have heard cases where people have to exit the country, stamp the visa and come back even in COS. Is that true?
