Intracompany Transfer Visas

Those people who work for international companies and have been asked to come to work for that company in the United States apply for an L-1 visa. If a few basic requirements are met, many advantages exist to using the L category.

This visa type gives special priority to executives and managers by allowing them to stay up to 7 years. Employees with specialized knowledge can stay up to five years. The employer decides how long an employee can stay in the U.S. with an L-1 visa; this period of time can reach a maximum of three years. Executives and managers with L-1 visas are also given special conditions that allow the employee to adjust status to permanent residence. The L-1 visa category allows a special one-year initial period of stay for foreign people opening a new international business located in the United States.
