Been working for the same company as I did on J1 and now out of US with the same company and they are willing to transfer me back on an L1 visa but i don't know how long the process would take or if we have to wait for another 2 months till the 2 year rule is over?
It is my opinion that there is no exception to the two year rule when applying for a L1 Visa thus, you will have to wait another two months before you can apply.
The L1 visa process can take a long time. And it is your employer who files for the benefit.It will be approved long after you are done with the J1 home requirement. Talk with your employer's immigration lawyer
You must wait the full two years before you apply for the visa at your consulate. However, the company can file the I-129 petition any time.
