L-1B Visa/Status – Specialized Knowledge Transferee

Basis Requirements:

The L-1B visa/status is available to individuals who possess a specialized knowledge and who wish to transfer from a foreign company to affiliate, subsidiary, or parent of a company in the United States. To be eligible, transferees must have worked for the eligible foreign company for one continuous year within the three years of the application date. Additionally, the foreign and U.S. companies must be and continue to be doing business with one another.

Duration of L-1B Visa/Status:

While the L-1B visa/status may be granted for up to three years, employees of newly established companies will typically only be granted one year by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). However, the L-1B visa/status may be extended to a maximum total period of five years (in two or three year increments) so long as both the foreign and U.S. companies continue to be affiliated, and so long as the employee remains employed for his or her specialized knowledge.

Family Members:

The spouse and children (who are not married and are under the age of 21) of the primary beneficiary will be eligible for the derivative L-2 status, thereby allowing eligible family members to enter the United States. Additionally, the primary beneficiary’s spouse will be eligible to apply for employment authorization and anyone with L-2 status will be allowed to attend U.S. schools.

Fees:

When filed from within the United States and at the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) (please read the disclaimer at the top of this page), the Austin immigration attorneys at the Law Office of William Jang, PLLC charge the following in attorney’s fees and for the filing fees currently charged by the USCIS:
