The L-1 Visa for an Intra-Company Transferee

The L-1 visa category is used to facilitate the swift transfer of existing worldwide personnel, to a United States entity that is a parent, affiliate subsidiary, joint venture, or operating division.  Individual candidates must meet the statutory definition of manager, executive or specialized knowledge worker.  Certain companies will be eligible for the Blanket L program, which allows qualified L-1 applicants to apply directly at any U.S. consular post abroad, thus saving time.  For assistance with the preparation and filing, or extension of an individual or blanket L petition, please contact The Ezer Law Group PLLC at
