No caps. Don’t need to renew every year. If you are L1A you could be eligible for EB1C first priority green card.

H1b to eb1c is still available. Just need to qualify for eb1c. H is the better visa. Easier to renew.

As someone who came to US on L1 Cons:cannot change employer,felt let down after multiple promotion denials.. Pros:Got GC in 2years and now looking to quit.. Go for L1A if you are an Indian or Chinese national and satisfy the criteria ..negotiate for GC process to start asap and you’re set.. if ROW H1B is better given the flexibility of job change but timeline to GC May be slightly longer due to PERM..

L2 spouses are now automatically work authorized, no EAD needed, other than that, no LCA needed. H1 is a better visa overall though

Since when

same question.

Even H1 can do EB1C . Earlier L1s had the benefit that spouse gets EAD now even H1 can do that after 140. Con on L1 is you cannot quit

There's no benefit on L1 per se, you can only work for that employer (no switching companies). If you have at least 1 year managerial experience abroad and you can demonstrate that, then you are eligible to get L1A and apply for EB1C which is faster than the rest of green cards.

Two things - your spouse can work without any other additional EAD requirements, and you don’t have to file LCA every time you change client (pertinent for consulting, with H1B I have to apply for LCA everytime I change clients which unfortunately is often)

Yes you are right, never had the luxury of having clients in the same location
