My case details are: 1. Came to US on H1B in April 2015. 2. Switched to L1A in December 2018. 3. Currently on L-1A visa (MPS till 02 Nov 2022). 4. Green card just initiated by the company.. recruitment, advertisement is in progress.Question... I am maxing out 6 years (H1b + l1a) on October 25, 2021. Suppose, I have my I140 approved in January 2022. However, at that time I would be on an L1A visa 7th year, would I still be able to switch to H1b then based on AC-21? I am confused because my 6 years would be completed in October 2021, if I - 140 gets approved after it and if I continue to stay in the US on L1A, is AC-21 is going to help in the change of status back to H-1B? Or do I need to switch back to H1B before maxing out 6 years in the US (L1A + H1B) together? … read more
