I was in USA for 2.5 years on L1 B and left USA in last year end. Since then I am outside USA. It is about 11 months now. I have few queries:
1. Is there any cooling-off period for US Work Permit (H1 B Cap/L1 B)?
2. I am planning to apply for H1 B Visa. What is the criteria of the cool-off period so that this time if I apply I will get the fullest term/duration permit (6 years) on my new H1B Visa?
3. If the H1 B application is filed with USCIS before one year (which I assume is the cool-off period), will I get the full term/duration permit?
4. Are the L1 and H1 visas treated independently with regard to cool-off period?
