What is a L-1 Status Visa?

New Jersey L-1 Status Lawyers

A L-1 status temporary visa is for foreign nationals who already work for a company that has a branch, subsidiary, affiliate or parent company in the United States. These are considered intracompany transferees that are coming to the United States company to fulfill an executive or managerial role or bringing a specialized knowledge. The intracompany transferee in question must have been a full-time employee of the corporation for at least one whole year within the past three years. If the alien transferee fits all these qualifications, then they may apply for a L-1 visa. At this current moment, there is no stated annual cap for L-1 visas and the employer is not required to get a labor certification before applying for the L-1 visa.
