Incorporating An Existing Business
L-1A Intra-Company Transfer
The L-1A is a visa which allows a US employer to transfer an executive or manager from an affiliated overseas office to a wholly owned subsidiary in the USA. This visa type is also for a foreign company which is not currently operating in the USA to send an executive or manager there with the intention of establishing one. The foreign company must employ over four people and have been trading for over a year. L-1A visas are valid for an initial year, with the opportunity to extend in increments of up to two years. You are able to renew a visa for a maximum period of seven years.
