I am working for a company since almost 3.5 years. I worked for 2 teams .. Team A for 3 years and Team B for 6 months. Both the teams are in different division and work on different product altogether. I am in team B right now . i have an onsite oppurtunity given by team A manager but company policy says you cannot change you team within 1 year of change.. Offcourse if my current manger release me then it would not be an issue. I tried convincing my manager but he argues it is not professional to leave the team early. I am very much interested for the onsite oppurtunity but don't know how to convince my manager without spoiling my equation with him.

Since this is all within the same company this should not matter too much - everybody is supposed to cooperate for the good of the company. If the manager of team A wants to have you on the team, he could take it to whatever manager is in charge of teams A and B, and convince him to make it happen. Of course, there could be well-known internal rules that everybody is aware of about the circumstances under which teams can be changed - if those were against this, it might be a difficult case to make, and you may have to suck it up.

This is exacyly what is happening. Policy says my current manger can block my release from current team. I would appretiate if anyone who had been in similar situation can guide me.
same situation was there in my project with my friend some time back. But the manager who was sending my friend to onsite took care of release and he kept informed my friend's manager that he will need the resource under him. Now my friend is enjoying his onsite. If previous manager really needs you, he might use his managerial relationships and get you there. Because managers need each others help managing resources as per there need. Even i faced same problem where my release was postponed by my manager when he knew that i was getting onsite in other project.
