I’m on L1 switching to H1 and have an approved I-797
Any risks? Also - considering Chennai vs Delhi as usual given appointment availability

You didn't apply for eb1c gc during your L1? I thought everyone and their mother on L1 applied for eb 1c?

I did but how will it matter? Will it affect my gc date?

OP, won't it complicate matters if your eb1c date becomes current while you're on an H1b? I mean, the very basis of your eb1 c application is because you're an 'international manager' and then on an L1 in the US with the same employer. If you go on an H1b now and then your time to file AOS comes, won't there have been a material change in your eligibility?

I will check with my lawyer thanks for pointing it out

The reason they want me to switch is so I can continue to work with an I-140 approval (which I have) which It seems is possible on h1b but not l1b

Oh so your H1b will also be with the same employer. Then maybe it may work.. Dunno. Wonder if eb1c 140 can be linked to H1b. I mean you can get h1b's through the 140 but since you've never held an h1b before, wouldn't you be subject to a cap? Interesting scenario. Never came across such a scenario before. Do keep us posted.
