Chicago L-1A Visa Attorney

Illinois Immigration Lawyer for Executives

Our global marketplace means that more and more companies are establishing foreign subsidiaries, affiliates and branch offices in order to meet their business needs.  Because a product or service must be marketed differently in different nations and cultures, companies frequently hire marketing managers to oversee their advertising and marketing initiatives.  As business needs shift, marketing managers, sales managers and IT managers are frequently transferred to other business offices abroad.

The experienced Chicago-area employment immigration attorneys at The Shapiro Law Group focus their practice on assisting clients with their visa and immigration needs, including those clients seeking to hire foreign marketing professionals through an H-1B visa.  Contact one of our knowledgeable employment visa lawyers at (847) 564-0712 to learn more about how we can help you with your H-1B visa needs with respect to marketing professionals.

L-1 Visas Requirements for Managers and Executives

The L-1 visa allows foreign marketing professionals that are transferring to the United States to obtain a temporary work visa provided the following eligibility requirements are met:

  • Must have worked abroad for at least one continuous year out of the previous three years (unless the employer has obtained blanket L-1 approval, in which case the time period is 6 months);
  • Must be employed abroad as either an executive, manager, or as an employee who possesses specialized knowledge; and
  • Must be sponsored by an employer to fill an executive, managerial or specialized knowledge position within the United States.
