As an employee of a company abroad, the intra-company transferee is to be transferred to a U.S. affiliate, parent, or subsidiary entity on a temporary work basis. In order to be eligible, the employee must have worked for the company abroad for one continuous year out of the preceding three years. The employee must be coming to the U.S. in order to continue working for the same employer or the affiliate, subsidiary, or parent company.
Further, the employee must be offered a position in the U.S. as either a “Manager,” “Executive” (collectively referred to as L-1A), or a person with “Specialized Knowledge” (L-1B), which is narrowly defined for L-1 visa purposes.
