I was in US on L1B visa and stayed there for little over 5 years (17th Sep 2007 till 11th Nov 2012), however my L1B visa was valid till 10th May 2012, but while I was in US, my company applied for my visa extension under L1A category in Feb 2012 and USCIS denied it on Oct 30th 2012 so I left the country on 11th Nov 2012.
Now I am planning to apply for H1B visa through same company in Apr 2013 under 2014 quota. Could you please advise what are my chances of getting approval for my H1B application? Does my L1A rejection have any impact on my H1B application? Also will I get fresh visa of 6 years if I enter US after 11th Nov 2013? Or I will get visa only for balance 1 year? Also advise if I have to take care of anything during applying for my H1B visa? Please advise.
