Following are the details for my visa status: L1-B visa stamp validity on passport from Company A is June 2017. I-129S validity from Company A is June 2017. I94 Validity is July 2017. Travelled to US on L1-B from July 2014- September 2014 for company A work. My visa is not revoked and I still fullfil 1 continous work with company A in last 3 years.
I am in India now, left company A in Feb 2015 and working for a different company B from Feb 2015. Now Company A has offered me a job in US and wanted to reuse my existing L1B. Its a blanked L1. I am hopeful that they should be able to use my existing L1B visa. But Company A is also checking with Chennai US consulate on whether I need to apply for a new L-1 visa at the consulate or can resuse the L1-B.
I was initially thinking that the case is simple reuse ie L1-B visa of company A can be re- join company A again in US, given the visa status above. Please let know if my understanding is right.
