Process & Requirements for L-1A to Green Card


Leadership skills aren’t limited by one’s country of origin — in fact, in some cases, being from a different country helps to bring a new perspective to a business to drive growth. For this reason, and others, many multinational companies — or those that aim to be — rely on the L-1 visa category to transfer certain employees in executive and managerial roles from qualifying foreign offices to the U.S. 

What Is an L-1A Visa Classification?

  1. A U.S. employer wants to transfer an executive or manager from one of its foreign offices to one of its offices in the United States
  2. A foreign company without an affiliated U.S. office wants to send an executive or manager to the United States with the purpose of establishing a new office

What is an EB-1 green card?

Did that last one sound familiar? You got it — to the layperson, it’s as though there is an overlap in the criteria between the L-1A visa and EB-1 green card classifications. Since the two classifications share similar requirements, many individuals who enter on the L-1A visa later proceed directly to permanent resident status through the EB-1 immigrant visa process.
