Can I apply for a fresh L1A VISA from my native country after getting RFE for L1A conversion that was applied when I was in US?

Asked about 1 year ago - Charlotte, NC

I am currently working in US on L1B and my L1A conversion is already filed with USCIS. Want to know if I can head back to my country of citizenship after getting RFE and apply for L1A VISA.
