  • need details on L1B and H1B

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I need clarification on L1B and H1B. My present company applied for a L1B visa and i've the H1B petition approved on 2007 and its done by other employer. i didn't initiated my H1B visa interview because my present company has applied a L1B petition. following question i need clarification,

    1.i'm going for the L1B visa interview, Will i get any problem because of HIB?.

    2.For example If i got rejected on my L1B. Can i able to initiate and go for the H1B from other employer and will i get any problem on L1B rejection?

    3.For example I got my L1B visa and I'm traveling to US through L1B. what will happen to my H1B? will it be valid? Can i change status L1B to H1B?

    Please clarify my doubts.

    Thanks and Regards

    1) Nothing happens to the H1 petition. It remains valid as long as the employer does not cancel it.

    2) No problem as long as the H1B is valid and job exists. You will need to get an H1 visa.

    3) See 1). You can apply for a chane of status from L1 to H1 within the U.S.

    BTW, "can" and "able to" should not be used together.
