L-1 Intracompany Transferee Visas

Are you a foreign executive, manager, or employee with specialized knowledge who needs to transfer to a position within the same company at a location the United States? If so, you will need to apply for an L-1 visa for intracompany transferees. Consult a North Carolina immigration attorney from Fayad Law, P.C. to discuss your situation and determine whether or not you are eligible for an L-1A visa or L-1B visa.

L-1A Intracompany Transferee - Executive or Manager

Employers may choose to transfer executives and managers from an affiliate foreign office to one of its offices in the United States. The employer must have a qualifying relationship with a foreign company and currently be, or will be, doing business as an employer in the United States and a minimum of one other country during the time of the beneficiary employee's stay in the United States. As for the employee, they must have worked for the qualifying company for at least one year within three years previous to their transfer and must be seeking to immigrate to the United States to serve as an executive or manager for a branch of the same company or one of its qualifying organizations.

L-1B Intracompany Transferee - Specialized Knowledge

Employers may also transfer workers with specialized knowledge to affiliate offices in the United States. The qualifications for the company and the worker are the same as for L-1A visas, except that the worker must have specialized knowledge instead of having the position of executive or manager. "Specialized knowledge" is defined as "either knowledge possessed by an individual of the petitioning organization's product, service, research, equipment, techniques, management, or other interests and its application in international markets, or an advanced level of knowledge or expertise in the organization's processes and procedures."
