Requirements necessary for an L1 visa

There are many companies in the U.S. that have foreign people working for them or are foreign companies with branches in the U.S. It is important for foreign workers to have access to these companies in the U.S., which can sometimes be a challenge with the visa system in the U.S.

An L-1 visa is a visa used by a foreign worker who is in a managerial or executive role. The visa allows the employee to temporarily work in the U.S. There are several requirements that must be met before an L1 visa is issued. First, there needs to be a relationship between a business in the U.S. and the business that is abroad. While the worker is in the U.S., the worker needs to be working for the company that is doing business in both the U.S. and at least one other country. The person who is seeking the L1 visa needs to have worked for the company for at least one year before applying for the visa and that year needs to have been spent in a managerial role.

Many foreign companies send their higher-level executives to the U.S. to set up new offices, work in the U.S. for a period of a time and for many other reasons. These companies are important to the U.S. economy and it is important for these companies to have these visas available to them. Understanding employment and immigration laws can help corporations get the visas they need to attract and keep specialized employees. At our law firm, we understand the importance of companies receiving the necessary visas to keep their multinational company successful.
