I am currently on a L1B-Blanket Below are the details
Visa expired on December 2012
I am on a valid I94 till Jan 2015 (my max out date is March 2015)
My company said that they can initiate L1A stamping from Canada for me. I found that I don't have to surrender my I94 if i have to go to Canada.
If my L1A is rejected for any reason (eg. If USCIS says clearly not approvable as i only have 7 reportees) can i still come back to US on a expired L1blanket with a Valid I94. Will I have to go back to my home country.
I am aware that if i applied for L1 blanket extension and if it gets declined i have to go back to my home country. I am not aware of how it would be if i applied for L1A Visa stamping from Canada while i am on L1B.
You can return to the US in L-1B status as long as you do not remain in Canada for 30 days or more.
