L-1 Visa – L-1 Visa Stamped at the U.S. Consulate in Rome, Italy

Posted by Camilo Espinosa on November 14, 2015


I decided to write this blog because there are many misunderstanding about L-1 visas.  It is important to understand that the category L-1 is a non-immigrant visa which means that the beneficiary plans to return to his/her home country after the L-1 visa period has elapsed.  I personally like to be as prepared as possible, so having this online might benefit some people who may be interested in investing money in the United States.

The L1 visa's main purpose is to allow a company with offices in its home home country to transfer workers in an executive, managerial capacity or with specialized knowledge from their home location to the United States.  One of the most important requirements to qualify for an L-1 Visa is that the executive, manager or person with the specialized knowledge has to have been working at the company for at least one continuous year of the past 3 years.


USCIS looks at whether the executive and or manager are going to invest money in the United States and whether the U.S. Company or the foreign parent company can pay his/her salary in the United States.   I recommend that investors/executives/managers who want to apply for an L-1 visa that they incorporate/organize their company or corporation in the U.S. and then start preparing the L-1 Visa plan.    One of the most important parts for any immigration process is to create a plan, organize it and then execute it.
