As many corporations continue to expand globally, L visas are increasing in desirability and need. L visas are available for high-level executives and managers, as well as specialized knowledge professionals, working for entities abroad that have related entities in the U.S. (or are establishing new/expanding operations in the U.S.) and seek to transfer to the U.S. to continue in their professional activities. Executives and managers are allowed to work in the U.S. for a total period of time of up to seven years, and executives and managers can sometimes utilize a streamlined path to apply for a green card. L-1B specialized knowledge professionals are entitled to work in the U.S. for a total period of time of up to five years.
