What is an L-1 Nonimmigrant Visa and who are Intra-Company Foreign Executives, Managers and Employees with Specialized Knowledge?

An L-1 nonimmigrant is a foreign national who, within three (3) years preceding the time of his application for admission into the United States, has been employed continuously for one (1) year by a firm or corporation or other legal entity or an affiliate or subsidiary thereof of a U.S. company, and who seeks to enter the United States temporarily in order to continue to render his services to the same employer or a subsidiary or affiliate thereof in a capacity that is managerial, executive, or involves specialized knowledge. These include for profit, not-for-profit, religious, and charitable organizations. Foreign nationals in this category are commonly referred to as intra-company transferees.
