L1 Visa status is available for qualifying executives, managers, and specialized knowledge employees. Under the L1 Visa qualifying employees may be transferred from a foreign office to an office in the United States. In some cases, the L1 visa can be transitioned to US permanent residence or a green card. We discuss the process of applying for a green card while on an L1 visa here.
We received the approval for a multinational executive in the IT industry for an EB1C green card in 3 months. The entire process of filing the I-140 Adjustment Petition to go from an L1A Manager to a US Permanent Resident (Green Card) under EB1C to green card production took 3 months with NO request for evidence (RFE) and NO interview.
