L1 Visa

The L1 Visa is a non-immigrant visa intended to facilitate the temporary transfer of foreign workers to US offices of the company they work for. L1 Visas are available to employees of international companies that have branches both abroad and in the US.

The L1 Visa also enables foreign companies that do not yet have an office in the US to send an executive or a manager to the US so that they can establish one.

There are two types of the L1 Visa:

  • L-1A Visa – intended for executive managers
  • L-1B Visa – intended for workers with specialised knowledge.

To be eligible for the visa, employees have to have been working for the company for at least one continuous year within the three years preceding their planned admission to the US.

The visa allows employees to come to the US for a certain period of time and work for the same employer as in their home country but in a US office. If you would like to come to the US to work for a new employer, you should consider applying for one of employment-based green cards.
