Can I re-apply for L1A after going back to India? How soon can I re-apply? Is 6 months wait from 6/14/13 required to re-apply?

Charlotte, NC |

I am on L1B and am completing 5 years on 3rd Sep 2013. I will be leaving US on 3rd Sep 2013. My L1A was applied on June 14th 2013 and was converted to premium. I received RFE on 11th July 2013 and later, I received denial notice on August 13th 2013 with reason "The evidence shows the beneficiary was not promoted to a managerial or executive position until June 14, 2013, less than six months prior to his or her reaching five years in L1B status".

In my question I meant can my employer re-apply L1A for me.

Talking to the immigration attorney who handles this issue for the employer is the way to go. Posting on AVVO is not.
