On February 2, 2010, we received an L-1A approval issued by the USCIS in the last week of January, 2010 to Lin & Valdez’s client. The petition was filed in December of 2009, and was approved without receiving Request for Additional Evidence from the USCIS.
Our client in this case is an international company from a South Asia country. A small size business, the company opened up its subsidiary in the Houston area of Texas. The investment amount from the parent company is around $60,000.00. The petition is for the owner/founder of the whole business to come to the US to head the new company. As the US traditionally is quite cautious in issuing visa and status to people from that region, our client is very pleased in getting the approval in such a short period of time.
Over the years, Lin & Valdez has applied for and obtained approvals for countless L-1A petitions for managers, and for L-1B special skill personnel, of international companies. Our L-1 clients come from many different countries of different continents. 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.
