On December 28, 2007, an L-1B application we filed for a stone material company was approved by the USCIS. The petition is for the position of stone fabrication technician for an employee of the company’s parent company.
L-1B is a non-immigrant visa which allows US companies to temporarily transfer the technical personnel of their foreign parent or subsidiary company having "specialized knowledge" to work at the US. Under the immigration regulations, “specialized knowledge” personnel is defined as personnel with special knowledge of the petitioning organization's product, service, research, equipment, techniques, management, or other interests and its application in international markets, or an advanced level of knowledge or expertise in the organization's processes and procedures.
Over the years, we have filed many L-1A and L-1B petitions for our clients around the world. If your company is a parent or subsidiary company of a foreign company, and you wish to apply for managerial personnel or foreign employee with special knowledge, please contact us. The help you need, as we always say, is just a click away.
