  • Travel question "during" L1 to H1

    Respected Attorney

    Am going through a tough time understanding things here in US

    Am a Indian. Have not applied for GC yet.
    Am in L1 visa. Have applied for H1 and have also got that approved this year (2008).
    My L1 is valid till 2010 and I believe, I can start working in H1 anytime after october 2008.

    Would want to visit India, before getting into H1.

    Can you please confirm:-
    a) if its okay to travel to India at this time of the year, in L1?
    b) Can I travel back to USA:
    b1) without any problems?
    b2) without doing H1 Stamping ?
    c) Can my wife travel without me and also come back in L2 safely (without problems) ?

    Appreciate your time and help!

    Thanks

    Any time is fine to travel to india, weather is getting better now COS gets abandoned if you go before 01OCT.
    b) Can I travel back to USA:
    b1) without any problems?
    Depends if you do things right.
    b2) without doing H1 Stamping ?
    Yes, if you plan to work for L1 employer.
    c) Can my wife travel without me and also come back in L2 safely (without problems) ?
    Only if you are maintaining in L1 status throughout.

    Appreciate your time and help!

    Thanks
