Followup To

Question -
I am working under a L1 Visa in the US but would like to know if another employer could hire me in the States and how would the pick up process take place.

Answer -
They could, except not as an H-1 until 10/07 and they could not apply until 4/07. You would have to qualify for other visas like J-1 or E-1 or E-2 to be able to do it now.

Answer
If you are Canadian, you would process by going to the us/canada border and reentering with a support letter and your qualifications. Only limited occupations fall into TN. If you are Mexican, you would have to get a petition approved before leaving the country to process the visa.
