I am currently working with L1B visa for Company - A. My visa is getting expired on 29th April. As per recent developments no L1 extensions are going through at my current company. My company-A is not interested to file H1B for me.
I am keen to switch my job with H1B visa with another company-B.
How can I continue to work in US if my L1 extension gets rejected? Is it possible to obtain a working status in that scenario with H1B?
You can only be granted H-1B status as of October 1, 2013 and will have to maintain your status until then or leave the US upon the expiration of your current status. Filing an H-1B petition will not keep you in status. Moreover, time spent in L status will counted towards H-1B term.
