L Visas
(Intracompany Transferees, L1 Blanket Petition)

An L intracompany transferee nonimmigrant visa is available for multinational companies seeking to transfer high-level and essential employees from overseas to provide similar services to a related entity in the United States.

L1 Visas (Intracompany Transferees):

According to the Immigration and Nationality Act, L1 status is available to persons who have worked abroad for one continuous year within the preceding three years in an executive, managerial, or specialized knowledge capacity and who are being transferred temporarily to the United States to work in a similar capacity in a related business entity or for the same business. The L1 Blanket is a petition which, if approved, permits intracompany transferees to apply for L1 visas directly at U.S. consular facilities abroad without the prior approval of an individual petition.
