I was in the USA on L1A till 23rd Feb 2015. My visa was capped off (7 years) and as a result I came back to India.While in India, during the cool off period, I had to accompany my wife(who is on H1B) to the USA in the month of Aug 2015. Due to some personal reasons I had to go on a long leave and continued staying in the USA & came back to India end of March 2016. During this time I was on dependent VISA of my wife , i.e. H4;Now I understand I have to physically stay outside of US to reset and be eligible to apply again for a working visa. But does the 1 year need to be a continuous 12 months or it might be a total of 12 months over the past 3 years ?
Can you kindly suggest ? So standing at this point, when can I apply for an L1A ( my company will) or when I can apply for an H1B ?Kindly let me know please !
