Guide | Understanding the L Visa

The L Visa is an essential employment visa for multinational companies who hope to employ managers, executives and employees with specialized knowledge in their U.S. offices or affiliates.

L-1A and L-1B visas provide flexibility to move valued team members throughout their organization to grow business, develop markets, and provide training to new offices. Additionally, an L visa can provide a pathway to employer-sponsored U.S. permanent residence status, allowing employers to create retention plans, and ensuring employees can plan for their future.

Whether you have an established business in the U.S. or are opening a new office or affiliate, it is important to understand how to use the L visa, who qualifies, and how you can avoid unnecessary interruptions.

Our comprehensive guide will walk you through the basics of the L visa and beyond, empowering your HR leaders and decision makers to develop a strategy for maintaining a diverse and vibrant workforce.
