H1b - EB1C eligibility


I am on H1B 7th year approved i140(with previous employer in eb2). My role is manager/director managing 15+ people and 15 yrs exp… I have been asked to go to another country by my current employer for the same job. If I am to come back to US after 1 year. Can I file in EB1C. Note that i have 2.5 year remaining in current H1B


Yes you will be eligible for EB1C. You can come back on H1B itself as the time spent outside US won’t be counted.
