What are the requirements for L Visas?
When examining L visa applications, United States immigration authorities ensure they meet the following requirements:
- The employee must have worked for the foreign company for one continuous year within the last three years, and must be completing an intracompany transfer as an executive or manager (L-1A visas), or an employee with specialized knowledge (L-1B visas).
- The U.S. branch or office of the company or organization must be adequately affiliated with the foreign company.
- The company must demonstrate they have procured enough office space for the U.S. branch.
- The organization must have their new office operational within one year of L-1 visa approval.
