I have a valid L1B-Individual visa (not the L1B- Blanket visa) which is valid till August 2012. I am right now with employer A on this visa. Now I am planning to switch jobs from employer A to employer B. What are my options open given that the H1-B quota for this fiscal year has been filled up.
Can I transfer jobs on a L1B-I visa i.e. can the same visa be transferred from employer A to B? If not, then can company B apply for a fresh L1B visa for me while I am with company A in US itself. P.S. Company B is a US based company. Once they have the visa, I will then quit company A and join B.
Can I transfer my L1B-I to a H1-B, given the fact that the quota for this fiscal has been reached? But here too I dont know whether my existing employer A would do that for me. They are infact applying for my L1B extension now since it is going to expire in another 3 months.
What are my options left to join the new employer B now?
An early reply would really help me in my decision.
