I am currently in L1b visa , visa was expired but I am staying with valid I94 .
I94 expires in Feb 2015 .
My company is applying for COS from L1 to H1 in April 2014 .
I have a question
If they are applying for L1 to H1 satus change in Apirl 2014,
Can I go back to India ( i knew I can not come as my L1 is expired )
but can I go in May or June and come back after getting H1 stamped on or after Oct 2014 ?
Can I travel back to India if they file for COS or is there an issue with going back as they are applying for change of status vs new h1 ?
