L-1 Visas

The L-1 visa is one of the most commonly issued employment visas in the US.  It is meant for international transferees who are moving from one country to another within the same company.  There are two versions of the L-1 visa: the L1A visa, for executives and managers, and the L1B visa, for specially skilled workers.  If you are moving to the United States as part of your job duties, it may be very beneficial to familiarize yourself with this type of visa.

If you or someone you love is considering moving to the United States or has any other immigration needs, the Austin immigration attorneys of the Law Office of William Jang, PLLC may be able to help.  Contact us today by calling 512-323-2333.
