Can my employer apply H1 B visa after my L2 visa expires i.e. next year. For H1b visa, is it mandatory to have an active visa when we are applying for it? I want to know whether i will be eligible for H1 B even though my L2 visa would have expired by this year Sep 2013.
By visa do you mean status? If you want to change status you have to maintain the L2 status until the H1B kicks in - if new H1B then October 1. However, if it is just a matter of a stamp on the passport, as long as you don't travel you should be fine. Talk to a lawyer before you leave the country.
