VISA CATEGORY L-1
A good start of the immigration process is to obtain visa L-1A for executive directors and managers, or L-1B for professionals. Visa category L-1A – is a long-term work visa designed for the transfer of governors, managers and employees with special knowledge within the company to work in the American corporation in the US, which is a subsidiary of a foreign company (eg: Ukrainian, Russian, Cyprus and others.). Under the subsidiary company means the new American company (corporation or LLC), created by the parent (the head) foreign company to do business in the United States or specifically acquired by the parent company as a branch of an existing American company. The visa is issued for a period of one to three years, but a year later the owner of this category of visa can apply for permanent resident status in the United States. Members of the family (husband / wife and unmarried children under 21 years) receive a visa category L-2.
Issuance of visa L-1 considered by the immigration service of the USA in a period of 2-3 months and requires the following conditions: the presence of the parent company abroad in which the visa applicant has worked at least one year on one of the leadership positions and the parent company is able to finance the activities of the branch for several years; the presence of a branch in the United States. A branch can be only newly created company (corporation or LLC) with current account in a US bank and the current office (office work is checked by inspectors INS); whether you have sufficient education and experience as a manager (lead manager) in the American branch.
VISA L-1B CATEGORY – is visa for specialists. That is, when transferring part of business in the US, you can take with you in the USA your most valuable employees (and their families). In case if your family members (husband / wife) have worked in your business for more than a year, you can issue them a visa L-1B category. Unlike visas L-2 for your family members, visas L-1B are entitled to work in the USA, but only in your business.
