Can I Recapture L-1A Visa Time for One Year outside U.S., so I Can File EB-1C? 

Dr. William:

My L-1A visa will reach the 7th-year limit, and the EB-1/EB-2 visa numbers retrogressed for my country. Can I recapture the L-1A visa time for my one year working outside USA? so I may still have time to file EB-1C Green Card application?


Answer:

If you are close to reaching the end of your 7th year, you should work with your employer to ask USCIS to recapture your time working outside the U.S. - to apply for extension of your L-1A time recapturing  your time abroad.

Also, your employer should immediately file I-140 alone to fix the priority date. When the EB-1C immigrant visa number becomes available, you should quickly file I-485 along with EAD and AP applications. You should watch closely the EB-1C visa number progression in the Visa Bulletins.
