The L-1visa is used by foreign workers to work for a qualifying affiliate U.S. employer in either a managerial/executive capacity (L-1A) or a specialized knowledge capacity (L-1B).
The L-1 foreign national is called an “intracompany transferee.”
L-1 Visas have no numerical limitation, and the L-1 visa is a good stepping stone for a green card petition down the road.
• Employer sponsor needed
• Company must document its business plan
• Must document work history & qualifications of employee
The L1 Visa requires detailed documentation about the employer and employee.
