On August 27, 2008, the USCIS approved an L-1A regular application we filed for a US company for its manager. The case was filed on August 4, 2008. While our client is contemplating to upgrade the petition to premium processing, we have already received the approval notice for them.
Our client in this case is an international company from a mid-Asian country. With its affiliation and connection with oil and gas business, the company has long planned to establish a formal establishment in Texas. They came to Lin & Valdez for consultation for incorporation and the immigration advices, and after talking with Attorney Stewart Lin immediately decided to retain our office to represent the company. The president of the company traveled to the US himself and then decided to file the petition in the US.
However, by the time all the document was ready, it was just three days left before the expiration of the client’s stay in the US. Our client, nevertheless, decided to apply for change of status directly, rather than requesting for extension. As such, the package was filed to the USCIS the day before the client’s stay expired on August 4, 2008. The rest is now a history. Even though the case is filed as a regular filing, rather than on premium process, we received the approval on August 27, 2008.
Over the years, we have filed many L-1A and L-1B petitions for our clients around the world.
