Hi, I am currently in L1 visa and have completed 3 years. I tried to convert from L1 to H1 in 2013 April but didn’t succeed in lottary system. Meanwhile my existing employer filed an extension of L1 visa. I received a RFE. I am planning to respond RFE but I see very less chances of extension getting approved, looking at the current trend of L1 visa. I might have to go back to India by Dec 2013.
I am hoping to apply for H1 again after i go back in 2015 CAP that begins on April 2014. My questions are: 1. If I get H1B in 2014, I assume I would get it for 2 yrs X months (6 yrs total - 3 yr X month I already spent on L1). Could this duration create any problem when I have to apply for H1B extension ? Is that a good idea to go for H1B in April 2014 or shall I spent one full year outside USA ? 2. I was reading some article about H1B and read about EVC and EC model. Can someone explain that team in detail ? Thanks
