L1B to L1 A extension and conversion

Schenectady, NY |

My L1B is expiring on 31st march 2012. As I have started Managerial activities since last 11 months .I have 20 people in my team to whom i supervise . I had performed PM activities in India before coming to US 2 year back . Can I apply for L1 A now ?

2. what in case I apply for new L1A? will I have to go my country back .? I have heard the company can file a new L1A while the nominee is still working in USA. Once new L1A gets approved, the person can go to either of “Near Shore” country like canada or Maxico and get new visa stamped. is it true ?

sorry its expirying in 31st march 2013. Can anybody please answer my question.

If your visa expired March 31, 2012 you are already out of status. Check your information and consult with an immigration attorney.
