L1-A allows an executive or manager from one of its affiliated foreign offices transfer to one of its offices in the U.S. It can be used when a foreign company tries to establish a U.S office. L1-A visa holders can stay in the U.S for maximum 7 years under certain circumstances. Family of L1-A holders, spouses and unmarried children who are under 21 years of age, can obtain L-2.
The requirements for both petitioners (employers) and beneficiaries (executives or managers) must be met.
The petitioner must have relationships with a foreign parent company, branch, subsidiary, or affiliate and have been or will be doing business in the U.S and in at least one other country directly or through a qualifying organization for the duration of the beneficiary’s stay in the United States as an L-1. The engagement in international trade is not required.
The beneficiary must have been working for one continuous year within the three years preceding the admission to the U.S as an executive or manager of foreign parent company, branch subsidiary, or affiliate. The reason to enter the United States must be to offer services in an executive or managerial position of a branch of the same employer or one of its qualifying organizations.
L-1 簽證是簽發給跨國公司經理人員(L-1A)或高級技術人員(L-1B)的簽證。跨國公司是簽證的申請人，經理或高級技術人員是受益人。不同於商務簽證或其它短期簽證，該類簽證的受益人可以有移民傾向。 L-1 簽證首次批准後,有效期為3 年或1年；可延長兩次，總有效期最長為7年。
