there are many diffrences between H1b and L1.L1 is a long term visa
and H1B is of 3 years extended to 6 years.L1 primarily is of 7 extendable of course.
in L1 your wife can work in H1B your wife cannot work.

L1 guys definitely have work rights in US than any other and more salary.
I am on H1B for company X. Visa for company X and I-94 are valid till - Oct 2008.
Company Y is ready to file for h1 transfer. My questions are:
If h1 transfer to company B is approved then
1> Do I need to go back to my home country to get my visa stamped? In other words, do I need to attend Interview at US Consulate in Home Country for stamping.
2> New H1 approval is sent along with new i-94, right? If so, will my current I-94 become invalid?
3> What if new H1 approval is sent (but with no i-94)..do I need to leave country and re-enter (possibly from home country or Canada), to have valid I-94?
Any help appreciated.
Second, why are you bringing up H-1B aliens from Third World countries, when there are tens of thousands of H-1B and other non-immigrant aliens from First World countries who insist on excellent benefits and pay?
