Change of Status - L1 to H1B

Differences and Similarities

Between L1 and H1B

If you’re seeking an L1 to H1B change of status, there are some factors that will remain the

same once you receive your new visa. The similarities between L1 and H1B status include:

Because of dual intent, you do not need to prove ties to your country of citizenship in

order to apply for a green card from your L1 or H1B visa status.

L1 and H1B both offer premium processing for a fee of $1255 USD. This ensures that

your case will be reviewed by USCIS within 15 days of being received. If USCIS asks for

any additional paperwork, such as an RFE (Request for Evidence), the 15 day period will

begin after those documents are received.

Advantages of L1 to H1B Change of Status

If you you wish to change your status from L1 to H1B, there are a variety of

advantages. For starters, the L1 to H1B process is much easier compared to

other change of status options. Also, if you do apply for H1B status and you are

denied, you may still remain in the U.S. for the duration of your L1 status.

Finally, H1B offers more flexibility when changing jobs. The L1 visa does not

allow you to work for any other company than the one through which you

applied for your visa. Conversely, you may change positions with the H1B

visa--it is important to note that you are required to alert USCIS of your

employment change prior to your last day.
