Our team of immigration attorneys specializes in assisting multinational companies and executives in navigating the complexities of the L-1A Visa, fostering international business growth and expansion.

Understanding the L-1A Visa

The L-1A Visa is a non-immigrant visa category designed for multinational companies to transfer their executives or managers to the United States to work in a U.S. branch, subsidiary, affiliate, or parent company. Key aspects of the L-1A Visa include:

Executive or Managerial Role: To qualify, the beneficiary must hold an executive or managerial position within the company, with decision-making authority and oversight responsibilities.

International Company: The U.S. employer and the foreign company must have a qualifying relationship, such as parent-subsidiary, affiliate, or branch office.

Temporary Employment: The L-1A Visa allows executives and managers to work in the U.S. for a temporary period, with the option to extend.

Key Benefits of the L-1A Visa

The L-1A Visa offers several advantages for both multinational companies and executives:

Global Leadership: Companies can transfer key executives and managers to lead U.S. operations, ensuring continuity and global leadership.

Managerial Experience: Executives and managers can gain valuable experience by leading U.S. teams and contributing to the company’s growth.

Dependents: L-1A Visa holders can bring their immediate family members (spouse and unmarried children under 21) to the U.S., and family members can obtain work authorization.

Dual Intent: L-1A Visa holders can pursue lawful permanent residency (green cards) while working in the U.S., making it a potential path to permanent residency.

Dear Mr. Ahluwalia, I would like to thank you for all your help with Dr. xxx case. She and I were very impressed with your services and the professionalism that you showed both of us.

I am forwarding your information for xxxx to contact you and make arrangements accordingly. Thank you for all your help.

Dr. F.

Inderjit, thank you so very much. I sincerely appreciate all the effort you took to get this approved and your incredible patience. As xxx mentioned, we will only work with you for all our future H1's. Thanks once again.


Inderjit handled our immigration matter in reference to my parents. We approached him and found him extremely pleasant to work with. In addition to his knowledge of the law, he guided us very well throughout the process. I would recommend him very strongly to anyone in matter of immigration.
