Obtaining L-1 Status

In order for an employee to obtain an L-1 visa, both the employee and the employer must meet certain qualifications.

The employer:

  • Must have a qualifying relationship with a foreign company; and
  • Is currently or will be doing business as an employer in the United States and at least one other country (either directly or through a qualifying organization) for as long as the prospective visa recipient will stay in the U.S.

The employee:

  • Must have been working for a qualifying organization abroad for one of the last three years; and
  • Must enter the U.S. to perform managerial or executive services for the same employer or one of its qualifying organizations.

For the purposes of this visa, “managerial” generally involves the supervision and control of professional employees and a function, section, or component of the organization. “Executive” refers to the employee’s ability to make major decisions with little oversight.

The L-1 visa allows the employee to stay in the U.S. for an initial period of one year, but this may be extended in increments of two years each (up to a maximum of seven). An L-1 visa holder may eventually be able to obtain a green card.
