L Visas - Intra-Company Transfers

Dallas Lawyers Serving Clients Nationwide

Many companies enjoy a global presence through their affiliates in the United States and around the world. As corporations continue to expand, the demand for L visas have increased. Companies with related operational entities in the U.S. can seek to transfer certain employees to these offices under the L visa, which allows foreign national executives, managers, and professionals with specialized knowledge to work in the U.S. Similar to H-1B visa holders, L visa holders benefit from dual intent and have access to premium processing for quicker decisions.

Types of L-Visas:

  • L-1A Visa (Intracompany Transfer of Executive or Manager): A U.S. employer can transfer an executive or manager working from a foreign office to an office located in the U.S. If a foreign company does not currently have an affiliate U.S. office, the L-1A visa can also be granted for the purpose of creating an office.
  • L-1B Visa (Intracompany Transfer of Employee with Specialized Knowledge): Employees with a specialized knowledge or skillset can be brought to work in the U.S. using the L-1B visa.

Executives and managers can remain in the U.S. for up to 7 years.

Professionals with specialized knowledge are allowed up to 5 years of stay in the U.S.

Requirements for the L-1 Classification

In order to qualify, the employer will need to show that he or she:

  • Has a qualifying relationship with the foreign company
  • Currently is or will be doing business as an employer in the U.S. and another country

At Akula & Associates, our Dallas L-visa attorneys and team can advise and assist businesses with all of their global staffing needs. We can determine eligibility and provide guidance throughout the process.

    "...Highly recommended and great law firm."
    I just want to take a moment and personally thanks Kavitha & Akula Law Firm for helping me out and getting through my complicated I140 case. It was a impossible case which Kavitha made it possible. As usual Kavitha's expertise has been phenomenal. I am very grateful to her. Because of her experience and professionalism in filing the I-485 it didn't even trigger an RFE or an interview request, it was a direct approval. And having Ambreen and other expert counsel members are really great to work with. They are prompt and very helpful. Ambreen, is so wonderful and have dealt so patiently and promptly with me during my I485 and the efforts she have put towards my application was at par. I was fortunate to work with Ambreen during this filing period. Highly recommended and great law firm.

    "They handle the legal process in a professional way."
    Thank you for all your help and patience with my H1B. You made a difficult time a little easier and less stressful, which I greatly appreciate. Ambreen was very helpful in our immigration process and her efforts and work helped us to achieve our most important goal, which is a future for ourselves and our child in the United States. It was a great experience to work with such a professional. We always felt that she was reachable either by e-mail or by phone. We were very impressed with her way of doing business and how she tracked and controlled every issue such that our immigration process went well. She was very responsive, constantly reviewing and checking for the documents needed to carry on the process. They handle the legal process in a professional way, and the treatment is friendly with the clients, which makes it easier and more enjoyable. They always follow up with all the steps throughout the process and kept me informed of the outcomes and further documents needed for the next steps, which made me stay one step ahead of the process to help ensure the desired outcome. Really glad to have her and Akula associates as my attorney in our successful visa applications. We look forward to working with her again for our future legal needs.
