Indio, CA |

I am wrking for an indian IT firm and am currently in India. My emploer filed petition for H1B 2014 and my application was rejected in the lottery (not a denial). My employer now wants to initiate L1B for me. In case the L1B is rejected (with the high rejection rate for L1B) , will it impact my H1B petition for 2015 ? Thanks for your time in advance

    It shouldn't, as each case and petition is adjudicated on its own merits, and nothing else. You this should not be worried.
