H1B for Brazilians is capped to 2 years due to reciprocity. Does that mean we get another renewal chance or are we only up for 4 years total?

Correct. It is with respect to the visa stamping, not H1B length.

What? I’m Brazilian and haven’t heard anything? What do you mean?

I believe that’s with the respect to the visa stamping not the actual length of H1B. I am European and due to reciprocity, my visa in the passport was 1 year and I had to renew it annually. The actual H1B still was valid for 3 years and then 3 more after renewal.

Where are you from? Interested in checking this for myself

L1B to L1A then EBC1 - possible? I’m currently on a L1B at Accenture, based in US which will expire soon and getting extended. Accenture hasn’t been super helpful with my immigration inquires.

Do I not qualify for EBC1 since I got my L1A in the country and not prior to transferring with that 1 year managerial experience abroad?

Did I need to get an H1B visa stamping if I’m in the US? I was on OPT and got my H1B while on it so ive been in the US since 2014, never left. It’s time to renew my H1B and the questionnaire is asking for my current visa info such as the visa number. I don’t have a visa stamp for my H1B because I was in the US. I do have one for my F1 that is obviously expired. I only have the I-747A for my H1B. Did I not get an H1B stamping when I needed to for 2+ years…?
