I am currently on L1B visa which expires on 21st Sep 2013. My Current employer has also filled H1B visa which starts from 1st Oct 2013. I have H1B petition approved in hand.
Before H1B petition approval, USCIS raised RFE for my 9 days gap status(21st to 1st Oct). Since my company is not willing to extend my L1B visa to fulfill 9 days gap, my H1B is converted to consular processing than COS. They have decided to go me back before 21st Sep 2013.
I want to transfer my H1B and remain in USA until H1B start date (1st Oct). Now my question is what should I do to fill 9 days gap so that I won't be out of status. Do I need to go back to India after 21st Sep because of H1B converted to consular processing?
