Immigration Issues/L1A to H1B


Expert: Eileen Chun-Fruto - 5/22/2009

Hi ,

Your suggestion looks really great in one of the case you have mentioned after H1 Denial. Can you please suggest for my case. I am in US on L1A since 2 years now, one another company sponsored my H1B for 2013 cap and have got the denial letter because of technical issues related to PO date and working location mismatch. It has been 15 days after the denial. Is there any way my sponsor can correct those errors and refile in Premium. What will be the processing steps in this. Will I get a new receipt number to track and how will my existing receipt status change.

Dear Manoj:

Firstly wondering why you have not file your GC as yet (on L1A since 2 years)? Anyways, as per you query:

- You may file an appeal against the denial [but that might take a long time]; you may also, file afresh with proper information. However, fresh filing will be fresh filing with new receipt an PO.

Best wishes,
