An L-1A visa is for intracompany transfers for executives and managers. Plainly, that means that this type of visa allows a U.S. employer to transfer an executive or manager from a foreign office to an office in the United States. Likewise, this visa is available to executives and managers who are part of a company that wants to set up an office in the U.S. because one doesn’t yet exist.
The L-1B visa is a nonimmigrant visa available to professional employees with specialized knowledge who work for a company that has an office – or wants to set up an office – in the United States. It’s very similar to the L-1A visa, but it’s for employees with specialized knowledge, whereas the L-1A visa is for managers and executives.
O-Visas & P-Visas
If you’re an artist or entertainer who wants to come to the United States, you could be eligible for a visa to do so based on your talent. Most artists and entertainers come to the U.S. on an O visa or P visa – and the type that’s right for you depends on your situation.
