Important Considerations for L-1A Intracompany Transfers

In order for the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to approve your Form I-129, Petition for Nonimmigrant Worker petition, a handful of prerequisites will need to be met. L-1A Intracompany Transfers for an executive or a manager demand a specific set of requirements due to the uniqueness of the immigration situation.

In your L-1A intracompany transferee executive or manager case:

  • You must be an employer actively conducting business within the United States.
  • You must have a “qualifying relationship” with a foreign company.
  • The foreign employee must have executive or managerial duties that require little oversight or permit the oversight of others within the organization.
  • The foreign employee will be allocated into a place of employment in the United States;
  • Or, the foreign employee must assist with the establishment of a new office in the United States.

If the L-1A intracompany transferee process is approved by the USCIS, the period of stay granted to the employee will range between one and three years. One year's permission to stay is given to employees who are transferred to assist with the establishment of a new location. Three-year permissions are generally given to employees who are transferred for other reasons. An L-1A employee can request stay extensions up until they have remained in the country for seven years.

Understand Your Rights as an Immigrant & Use Them

The L-1A intracompany transferee process can be highly complicated due to a number of outlying factors, such as the employee’s company of origin, whether or not the employee has family members, and so forth. To remove the guesswork from your case and expedite the process of bringing a foreign executive or manager into the United States, call to connect with Milla & Associates, LLC.

  • Robert has been absolutely amazing!

    “Robert has been absolutely amazing! My husband and I used his services for our marriage based green card application. Our case was not complicated, but we are so happy we hired Robert. He was nothing but helpful and would always make time to schedule a meeting with us or jump on the phone to guide us through the process and answer our (many) questions. On top of him being friendly and approachable, he knows the immigration law inside out. We can not recommend Robert enough to anyone applying for a marriage based permanent residence.”

  • We strongly recommend Robert

    “My wife and I hired Robert to handle my wife's greencard process while I was busy studying an MBA and could not dedicate much time to the process. We consulted with other lawyers and decided to go with Robert because he was very direct in his answers, gave honest and knowledgeable advice and because from day one he provided first class support and clarity on what the process would be like. My wife benefited greatly from his calmed demeanor and openness to quickly answer our questions and accommodate solutions for our case. We strongly recommend Robert, you will find a lawyer you can trust and that will help and guide your throughout every step of the process.”

  • Robert, he was calm, supportive and had a lot of knowledge ...

    “My husband applied for my green card and we prepared the documents on our own, but unfortunately I got an RFE for the same documents which we had already submitted. So we thought of hiring a good lawyer for our case, I called up a few lawyers and explained them my case to get 1 free initial consultation, out of the ones we called, I really liked Robert, he was calm, supportive and had a lot of knowledge on such cases. I quickly decided that I would go with him for my case. We met him the next day and discussed our case in detail, soon after we got a list of documents that were needed by his office, we promptly replied, he prepared our case again , we had dew meetings in between and finally my case was approved, He also helped a lot with our interview preparation and also came with us to the interview venue , where he spent more than 2 hours with us explaining the process, he also appeared with us in the interview and was a great support. I finally cleared the interview under his expert guidance. I would definitely recommend him to my friends.”

  • Excellent Service Better Attorney

    “Robert made sure I understood everything that was going on ad answered all my questions to the best of his knowledge. Before going to Robert for my immigration status, I looked around but other attorneys were not nearly as insightful or helpful as Robert. Robert always made sure that I was prepared for everything that I was going to through. For the interview he prepared me so well that I was not nervous when talking to the officers. Robert made sure I was aware of all the possible outcomes when I acquired his services. Robert made sure that I had the best experience possible for the trials that I was going to face with the immigration process. Result: Form I-751 Petition with waiver of joint filing (good faith marriage that ended in divorce) approved”

  • Robert was intrumental with the success of our case.

    “Robert was intrumental with the success of our case. He was very thorough and insightful through the process over the two years we worked with him. It was very evident that he does the job with passion and geniune interest. My husband and I truly appreciate all that he has done for us.”

  • Personal immigration lawyer

    “Justin is my goto immigration lawyer. I came here as a student and Justin handled my H1B case couple of years ago. Although Trump administration was pushing back on many of the cases with RFEs, Justin gave a strongly worded response back and got me, my H1B. Last year, fortunately I met my now wife and after we got married, Justin handled our green card processing with ease and seamlessly. He has many contacts in the Immigration office, which made even more easier and hospitable for my interview. He was available throughout the interview and even helped on a couple difficult questions in between the interview. Throughout the processing, I found Justin highly organized and great understanding of the domain. He is very current with the news and changes to immigration laws and if he doesn't have answer then, you can expect an email to follow up with answers. I highly recommend Justin as a personal immigration lawyer.”
