Question
I am a indian workin in U.S for an indian company in H1-B visa. I heard that my employer is going to change our visas from h1 to lq. But not sure it is possible.

Is it possible for an employer to change the H1-b to L1 visa.

If so, is it possible for them to do it without the knowledge of the employee.  

Answer
THEY CAN ASK FOR A CHANGE OF STATUS TO L-1 BUT YOU MUST QUALIFY I.E. YOU MUIST HAVE WORKED FOR ONE OF THEIR FOREIGN BRANCHES FOR THE YEAR BEFORE YOU CAME HERE AS A MANAGER OR EXECUTIVE AND YOU MUST BE A MANAGER OR EXECUTIVE HERE FOR THEM.

REGARDS,

ROBERT
