Bexar County Lawyers Assisting Intracompany Transferees Through Understanding How L-1A Visas Fit Into the US Immigration System

An L-1 visa is a temporary work visa available to employees of multinational companies with offices in the U.S. An L-1A visa is a specific type of L-1 visa available to executive and managerial employees and is valid for seven years, as opposed to five years for an L-1B visa.

Although an L-1A visa is a nonimmigrant visa, many multinational executives and managers use it as a first step toward lawful permanent residency (green card status).

Processing times for L-1A visas are typically very abbreviated, and once an employee has obtained a visa and entered the U.S., he or she can begin the longer process of applying for a green card. For employees in these positions, this is normally accomplished with an EB-2 visa.
