Hoping you can provide some high-level clarification for my questions below
I am on H-1B, have an approved I-140 and already used the initial 6 years of my H-1B. If I go out of country for more than a year and want to come back to the US,
1. If my H-1B is still valid, can I come back to US with the same H-1B for the same employer, but with a new role, or do I need to file an amendment?
2. Do I still qualify for cap-exempt or apply for fresh/lottery H-1B?
3. Can I change to L-1A and retain my priority date (because the I-140 priority date was based on my H-1B employment).
