The non immigrant L1 visa facilitates foreign workers being transferred by their employer to enter the United States. Foreign workers may be transferred to the US to manage an entire organization, a division or major function of any related organization.
If you apply for an L1 visa and your petition is approved, you will be transferred to the country and work for that U.S. company related to the one employing you outside of the U.S. Besides, you may travel in and out of the country or stay here continuously up till your L1 status expires. Last but not least, once your visa application is approved, you may avail of L2 visas for accompanying relatives, including your spouse and unmarried children under 21 years of age.
To be eligible for this particular visa, the U.S. company to which you are being transferred should be a subsidiary, affiliate, branch or joint venture partner of your current non-U.S. employer. Additionally, you must be employed in the U.S. company as a manager, person with specialized skills and knowledge or executive.
If you wish to check for further visa qualification requirements for foreign workers, schedule a private consultation with Alice Antonovsky, immigration specialist.
A foreign national may work for an existing or new branch or subsidiary of the overseas company established in the United States as an executive or manager of this company or as a specialized knowledge employee with the intracompany transfer L1 visa if they have done so continuously for at least one of the three years prior to the application.
The foreign L-1 transferee must be looking to enter the United States in order to fill a managerial, executive, or specialized position. As a result, the application will need to show that the prospective transferee is qualified to hold an executive or managerial position within the U.S. organization and has the necessary expertise and experience to do so.
In order to qualify as an employer, a U.S. business must "have a qualifying relationship with a foreign business," which is described as a parent firm, branch, subsidiary, or affiliate.
Any corporation may apply for an L-1 visa as long as the parties have an international qualifying relationship.
The L-1 visa has extensive documentation requirements. To establish all the facts required by immigration laws, the petitioner must present documents from the foreign corporation that serve as self-attestation.
I studied engineering in one of the most prestigious universities in Colombia. Unfortunately, finding a job was hard, so my sister who was married to an American told me to come to the US. I enrolled NYU to continue studying and just decided to hire Alice Antonovsky to help me find a suitable option to change my student status. She is very understanding and professional. Great lawyer so far!
When I met Alice Antonovsky, I was looking for a qualified person to help me identify the type of visa I needed to stay in the United States permanently. She evaluated my situation very objectively and let me choose the path that seemed closer to my needs. Today, I am a permanent resident and I thank her deeply.
I started looking for an immigration lawyer after applying for my son's Green Card and getting no answers. Alice helped me evaluate the situation and found out I had not sent some required information by immigration authorities. I then provided what was needed and the issue was quickly resolved. My son is now living with me in New York and I couldn't be happier.
