L1A status in US during Transfer on weekend from India

Hi,
I’m in L1A currently residing in US, im getting transferred to my US entity from Indian entity. The last day given in India is on a Friday(June 14th) and the joining date here in US is on Monday(June 17th). Since L1A is tied with employment, im worried, what would be my status during that weekend (June 15th and June 16th). will it impact in any way?

Kindly advise.

Thank you.

Do not worry, you should be fine. Most people enter US on weekend and start work on the next working day on Monday.

I have not heard of any issues earlier with this kind of set up.

Thank you very much sir.

Hi,

I was recently advised by my immigration team to go to canada/Mexico for the visa renewal. I’m L1A ad due for 2nd extension. Which option would be safe bet?

Thank you.

Hi @siva_nithiin

Both Mexico and Canada are safe options for US visa stamping. You can choose one based on your convenience.

Mexico has a bit of hassle in the sense that they only accept Visa stamping fees in cash and in person.

So, Canada might be a better option but you would need Canadian visitor visa there.

Thank you very much sir.
