Columbus L-1B Visa Attorney

In the 21st century’s global marketplace, a company frequently finds that the job candidate best suited to a particular specialized task is already working for the company, but in another country. The L-1B visa is designed for foreign nationals who work for multinational businesses and who need to enter the U.S. to work at the company’s branch, subsidiary, parent, or affiliate office. When your business operates in foreign nations and wants or needs a foreign national employee to enter and work in the company’s U.S. facilities on a temporary basis, the company will need to acquire an L-1B visa. Let an experienced Columbus L-1B visa attorney with Sam Shihab & Associates help your company obtain the L-1B visas you need and address your other employment-related immigration questions and concerns.


The L-1B visa is a non-immigrant visa that allows international companies to transfer workers with “specialized knowledge” to the U.S. for up to 5 years. Employers filling multiple positions may apply for a “blanket” L-1B petition rather than filing single petitions for each employee. The L-1B visa allows international employees to relocate to the company’s U.S. affiliate after having worked abroad for the company for at least one continuous year within the previous three years. For example, if a worker’s application is submitted on July 15, 2016, his continuous year of employment abroad must have been between July 15, 2013 and July 15, 2016.
