Will the L1B rejection impact the H1B petition ?

Asked about 1 year ago - 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

    Answered . The possible L1B denial should not affect future applications, as long as there is no fraud alleged against you and all of your information remains the same, i.e. date of birth, full name, education, work history, type of field you wish to work in, etc.
