L1 Visa Blanket Requirements
San Francisco Immigration Lawyer Offers Insight on L1 Visa Blankets
Using a L1 visa blanket can save petitioning businesses a lot of time when trying to bring managers, executives and employees with specialized knowledge to the U.S. Non-blanket applications can take up to four months or longer while those submitted under the blanket can be facilitated quickly.
Company Requirements for L1 Visa Blankets
In order to qualify for a blanket, companies must meet the following criteria.
- The company petitioning for the blanket and its entities are engaged in business in both countries, providing services and/or products on an ongoing basis.
- The company requesting the L1 visa must have done one of the following: (a) During the past year, received a minimum of 10 “L” petitions for managers, executives, or specialized knowledge professionals, (b) have total combined annual sales of its U.S. holdings of a minimum of $25 million or (c) already have in place a work force comprised of at least 1,000 employees.
