L-1 Visa For Filipinos

If you have an existing and viable business in the Philippines and you want to expand your operations in the U.S., you may qualify for L-1 visa. The L-1 visa is ideal for small businesses and start-ups as it permits the transfer of managers and executives who possess direct knowledge of operations as well as the goals of the main office. Multi-national companies can also use the L-1 visa to develop a new market in the U.S.

Whether you are small business or a multi-national company based in the Philippines, the L-1 visa will facilitate the needs of intra-company transfers. There are two types of L-1 visa classification: L-1A Intracompany transferee, executive or manager and L-1B Intracompany Transferee Specialized Knowledge.

The L-1A nonimmigrant classification enables a U.S. employer to transfer an executive or manager from one of its affiliated foreign offices to one of its offices in the United States. This classification also enables a foreign company which does not yet have an affiliated U.S. office to send an executive or manager to the United States with the purpose of establishing one.

The L-1B nonimmigrant classification enables a U.S. employer to transfer a professional employee with specialized knowledge relating to the organization’s interests from one of its affiliated foreign offices to one of its offices in the United States. This classification also enables a foreign company which does not yet have an affiliated U.S. office to send a specialized knowledge employee to the United States to help establish one.
