L-1 Visas for Executives, Management, and Key Personnel
When can a U.S. employer apply for an ‘L’ Visa Classification?
L-1 Visas are appropriate for intercompany transferees. It is designed to allow U.S. employers who have overseas operations transfer certain employees to work for its business in the United States. Two types of L-1 visa classifications are available: L-1A visas for managers or executives, and L-1B visas for employees with key knowledge of the business’s products or processes.
