The L-1 visa is a non-immigrant visa category for intracompany transferees, allowing foreign employees of a multinational company to work in the US affiliate. Here is the general procedure for obtaining an L-1 visa, with a focus on the role of an L-1 visa attorney:
Determine eligibility: To be eligible for an L-1 visa, the foreign employee must have been employed continuously for one year within the three years preceding the application in a managerial, executive, or specialized knowledge capacity with a foreign company affiliated with a US company.
File a petition: The US company must file a petition on behalf of the foreign employee with the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). An L-1 visa attorney can assist the company in preparing and submitting the petition, ensuring that all required documentation and evidence are included.
Attend an interview: If the petition is approved, the foreign employee must attend an interview at the US consulate or embassy in their home country. An L-1 visa attorney can provide advice on the visa interview process and prepare the employee for the questions they may face.
Obtain the visa: If the foreign employee is approved at the interview, they will be granted an L-1 visa, which will allow them to enter the US and start working.
Note that the actual process can be more complex, and having the assistance of an experienced L-1 visa attorney can help ensure a smooth and successful outcome.
