Business and investor visas
This category involves temporary and permanent visas. Temporary visas include E visas for foreign investors from treaty trader nations and L visas for intercompany transfers.
The L visa is a tool for a foreign-based company wishing to establish a business in the United States and to transfer certain qualified employees to the new U.S. office.
The main benefit of the L visa is that, if the transferee wishes to obtain permanent residence, the labor certification process can often be bypassed and the transferee can obtain lawful permanent residence as a multinational executive or manager.
This visa also covers the transferee's spouse and all children under twenty-one years of age.
There have been a number of recent changes in the past few years to the laws regarding investor visas.
