Dear experts,


I have been worked at IBM for 3 years, from 2008 to 2011. Afterwards, I moved to Hewlett-Packard from 2011 to 2013. Then I came back to IBM in january this year (amost 6 months).

My question is:

Due to the following official information from USCIS, Can I apply to L1-A visa once having a recommendation letter to this kind of visa from IBM? Look, IBM has wrote a letter to ask L1-A at consulate. I am not sure if I will be eligible, I mean, does it works?



reference: http://www.uscis.gov/eir/visa-guide/...1-requirements


best regards,

Igor

This is the rule:

Generally have been working for a qualifying organization abroad for one continuous year within the three years immediately preceding his or her admission to the United States;

If you left IBM in 2011 and did not rejoin them until 2015, then you have not worked for them for one continuous year within three years immediately preceding the application.

(you did not work for them in 2012, 2013 and 2014 and indeed have only worked for them for 6 months currently.)
