The L-1 visa is a nonimmigrant visa that allows companies to transfer certain kinds of employees from one of their affiliated foreign offices to their office in the United States. This visa can be used for intracompany transferees such as executives, managers, and specialized knowledge employees. Start-ups to large multinational companies commonly use it to bring key personnel to the United States.
The L-1 visa category applies to someone who has worked for at least one year for a foreign company with a parent company, subsidiary, branch, or affiliate office in the US. These workers come to the US as intra-company transferees who are coming temporarily to perform services either 1) in a managerial or executive capacity (L-1A) or 2) in a specialized knowledge (L-1B) capacity for a parent, branch, subsidiary, or affiliate of the same employer that employed the professional abroad.
There is currently no annual cap on L-1 visas. Multinational companies use this visa to transfer workers who meet the L-1 legal standard.
Due to the complex nature of immigration law, we suggest consulting with an experienced L-1 visa attorney. An immigration lawyer can help clarify the requirements, inform you of potential pitfalls, and ensure the application is submitted correctly.
Hiring an immigration lawyer is especially important if a company has had previous experience with L-1 denials or revocations from USCIS (US Citizenship & Immigration Services). An experienced attorney can review the prior filing and develop a strategy for success.

The L-1 visa is an excellent option for companies and individuals wishing to transfer employees abroad to the United States. It offers many benefits, such as:
To receive an L-1 visa, the employee must meet the following requirements:
Suppose the employer is a new US business. In that case, they may be eligible to file a New Office Petition, which allows them to bring in an employee even if they haven’t been operating in the US for a substantial amount of time. This process requires additional documentation and must be approved by USCIS before the employee can be issued an L-1 visa. The employer must demonstrate that they have a sound business plan, sufficient financial resources to meet their objectives, and can provide a viable job for the employee in a managerial, executive, or specialized knowledge capacity. In addition, new office L-1 petitions must be approved by USCIS before the employee may apply for an L-1 visa.
