Hello, I came to US on F1 Visa in 2012(Indian citizen) and on October 2014 received my H1B from my first employer valid from October 2014. In 2015 I moved to my current employer and current H1B is valid until Sep 2021. My current employer initiated Green card processing. Perm Petition was approved (ETA form 9089 has expiration date Nov302017)and subsequently I-140 was approved (Received date July32018) which has SOC code 15-1199 Skill level 4. Now i have an option from the current employer to work in Paris, France IT office for one year. If I move to Paris, can I return on L1 and resume work here in US ? How much time will I have left after coming back to US. If I could come back on L1B, will that expedite my green card processing ? Similarly how will L1A change the green card processing ? From a green card point of view it is better to wait in US on H1B or take opportunity and move to Paris for one year ? Or should I wait in US for couple years and get a promotion and then move to Paris for one year ? What is your advice to explore the offer so green card processing can be expedited ? Does the country I relocate make any difference ? Regards, AV
