Here is my case,
I Stayed in US from May 2009 - Jan 2011 and from June 2011 - Mar 2012 in L1B ( Total 2.5 Years )
My L1B Expired on Dec 2011, My employer filed H1B on June 2012.
The petition has been approved for Oct 2012 - Sep 2015.
I am waiting to go for stamping now and if it goes through fine, I am planning to enter US after Mar 2013
My question is,
Since I exited us on Mar 2012, If I enter US after Mar 2013, Will I get full 6 years in the new H1B or will I get only 3.5 years ( L1B+H1B ) ?
Please note that on Mar 2013 I would've spent 1 year outside US before entering with new H1B ( But my H1B was filled within 1 year after I exited US )
Will I be able to extend the H1B (when it is due for extension ) for another 3 years.
Any help is appreciated, Thanks in advance,
