I was on H1B for 4.9 years from 2008 to 2013. In 2016 I came back to US on L1A visa (5 years will be completed in June this year) My Employer is not planning to start my GC process. So, I have to explore options to move to other Employer. I want to know if I am eligible to claim my unused H1B period of 1.3 years now, which expired in 2013. I have read an article which says, “there is no time limitation on recapturing the remainder of the initial 6-year period of H-1B admission under INA 214(g)(4).” But since now I am on a different Visa ( L1A), I am not sure if I can recapture H1B period. Please clarify.
