Now that the H-1B quota has been met, how can companies bring foreign talent to the U.S.?  The L Visa, of course! 

The L-1A visa enables a U.S. employer to transfer an executive or manager from one of its affiliated foreign offices to one of its offices in the United States.  This classification also enables a foreign company which does not yet have an affiliated U.S. office to send an executive or manager to the United States with the purpose of establishing one. 

The L-1B visa enables a U.S. employer to transfer a professional employee with specialized knowledge relating to the organization’s interests from one of its affiliated foreign offices to one of its offices in the United States.  This classification also enables a foreign company which does not yet have an affiliated U.S. office to send a specialized knowledge employee to the United States to help establish one. 

The topics will include:

  1. The definition of Doing Business
  2. General qualification for the employer and employee
  3. Who is considered an Executive or Manager
  4. Who is considered to have Specialized Knowledge
  5. New U.S. Office requirements
  6. Period of Authorized Stay
  7. Blanket L visas

Please join us to learn more about the L visa classification and how your company may be able to benefit from it. 

The Webinar will begin at 2:00 p.m. and end at 2:30 p.m. EST.

As always, there is no charge for our Webinar.  We hope to see you there!
