Practice Note
Success Story: Premium Processing L-1B Petition Approved in Three Business Days

On July 15, 2008, we received an email from Vermont Service Center of the USCIS approving an L-1B application we filed for a software development company.  This case is remarkable because it took the USCIS only three business days to approve this case as we filed this case out on July 9, 2008.  It was received by the government on July 10, and July 12 and July 13 are the weekend!  Applause to the USCIS!

The petition we filed for our client is for the position of Project Liaison for an employee of the company¡¦s subsidiary in India. As the company is developing software for the US customers, they need to have one of the major engineers in India to come to the US to coordinate the work of the two sides.

L-1B is a non-immigrant visa which allows US companies to temporarily transfer the technical personnel of their foreign parent or subsidiary company having "specialized knowledge" to work at the US.  Under the immigration regulations, ¡§specialized knowledge¡¨ personnel is defined as personnel with special knowledge of the petitioning organization's product, service, research, equipment, techniques, management, or other interests and its application in international markets, or an advanced level of knowledge or expertise in the organization's processes and procedures.

Over the years, we have filed many L-1A and L-1B petitions for our clients around the world.  If your company is a parent or subsidiary company of a foreign company, and you wish to apply for managerial personnel or foreign employee with special knowledge, please contact us.  The help you need, as we always say, is just a click away.
