My H1b VISA process had initiated internally but couldnt proceed further due to project concerns. The organisation plans to intiate L1b for me. I have a following questions - My corporate experience will complete 2 years on June 8, 2013. Does that (in any form) reduce my chances for getting an L1b? Its April 18 today. Is it possible to initiate a H1b Premium application now and keep hopes for it to clear? Do H1b and H1b premium share the same quota? How does a premium applicant get an advantage over a regular applicant? Till when can H1b Premium application be submitted? If H1b regular cap is full (i.e. the applications are overloaded by April 5), can the H1b Premium applicant pull any advantage here? Either of L1b or H1b premium applications is yet to be initiated for me. What would you suggest, be the best way to make my way FASTEST to the US.
