Impact on L1b-visa after B1-visa refusal


	My B1 was refused in March 2011. My employer wants me to apply for an L1B now. Travel time will be only for about 3 months.

	1) What is the impact of a B1 refusal on L1 visa? any chances of L1B refusal?

	2) In case L1 gets rejected ,will it impact my application for H1B-visa or H4-visa the next year. 

	Please advise if it is needed to process L1B premium.



Usually, there won’t be any impact of denial of one VISA on the application of another. However, if the denial was due to misrepresentation of facts from your side, then there could be an impact.
