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:
- The definition of Doing Business
- General qualification for the employer and employee
- Who is considered an Executive or Manager
- Who is considered to have Specialized Knowledge
- New U.S. Office requirements
- Period of Authorized Stay
- 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!
