L-1A Visa

To petition for L-1A beneficiaries, employers must be able to show a qualifying relationship between the U.S-based employer and the employee’s foreign employer. This means that both of these employers must be either the same organization, such as a U.S. company with a foreign office, or related organizations, such as a “parent and subsidiary” or affiliate organizations.
  • The organization has secured sufficient physical premises to house a new office;
  • The employee has been employed as an executive or manager for one continuous year in the three years preceding the filing of the L-1A petition; and 
  • The U.S. office will be in a position to support an executive or managerial position within one year of the approval of the L-1A petition.

What is the process for applying for L-1A visas?

  • Employer files an I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker.
  • USCIS sends an I-797 Notice of Action to the approved employer. 
  • Employee completes their DS-190 electronically, submits photographs and fingerprints, and interviews with their U.S. embassy or consular office.
