The L visa is a perfect fit for multinational corporations seeking to temporarily relocate their key employees.
✅ L-1A Visa: Ideal for intracompany transferees in managerial or executive positions. The employee must have served the foreign employer for at least a year in the last three in an executive or managerial capacity and be set to provide similar services in the U.S.
✅ L-1B Visa: Tailor-made for intracompany transferees with specialized knowledge. The employee must have been with the foreign employer for at least a year in the last three, and their services in the U.S. should leverage this specialized knowledge.
⏱ Initial stays are permitted for up to three years, with extensions possible – a maximum of seven years for L-1A and five years for L-1B visas.
Both visas mandate a valid employer-employee relationship and a qualifying relationship between the U.S. and foreign companies.
The L visa offers the agility multinational companies need to seamlessly transfer key employees to the United States, ensuring continuity in operations and employment.
