What happens when someone is transferred to the US by their employer?
Even if someone is being transferred to the United States by their foreign employer, they will require a United States work visa in order to be in the United States as a legal employee. The visa for expansion of business into the US and employee transfer to the US is the L1 work visa.
Applying for an L1 visa – what are the requirements?
There are several requirements for both the employee and the corporation. The employee must be either an executive, a manager or a specialized knowledge employee who has worked one year full time with the company.
The corporation must be related to the United States office so much that it is a branch, subsidiary, parent company, affiliate or joint venture partner, while the company must also remain actively in business after the transfer to the United States.
The L1 visa may be valid for seven years or for five years depending on the employee’s occupation with the company. There is also potential for the L1 visa to lead to permanent residency in the United States through employer petitions.

Completely smooth process. Rania did a great job in my Canada work permit. The team is absolutely competent and knowledgeable. Alicea was so amazing and was able to answer any of my questions immediately. I had peace of mind throughout the application. I would recommend them to other friends looking for assistance with their applications.
I highly recommend VisaPlace to anyone seeking help with navigating the legal minefield that is Permanent Residency. As someone who is very easily stressed, Lauren & Mariana have saved me a lot of sleepless nights. They are fast, efficient, reliable and honest and I will be telling any of my friends to use them for immigration. Thanks to them, my future with my husband in Canada is bright
