US Visa handling H1B and L1A simultaneously

Hi Saurabh

I am going to apply for H1B in Apr 2014. However, my organization is going to apply for L1A for me in the month of July. How my H1 visa will be handled if I get L1A and travel to US.



They can happen in parallel through different organizations. You need to be qualified for each position in order for that respective visa to get approved.

If you travel to US on L-1, then your H-1 doesn’t become invalid. In future, you can easily move to H-1 by having an employer file COS for you.
