What is an Intracompany Transfer?
An intracompany transfer (ICT) is when an employee of a company moves from one foreign office to another foreign or U.S. office within the same company. The ICT allows for the continuation of employment with the same employer. There are three types of ICT visas:
The L-1A visa is for executives and managers who need to come to the United States temporarily to continue working for a foreign company that has a U.S. branch, subsidiary, or affiliate. Executives are defined as those who have the authority to make decisions of wide latitude without much oversight. Managers are defined as those who supervise and control the work of professional employees or manage an essential function within the company, division, unit, or institution.
The L-1B visa is for employees with “specialized knowledge” of the company’s products, services, research, equipment, techniques, management, or procedures. Specialized knowledge is defined as knowledge that is not common within the company and that gives the employee an advantage over other employees.
The L-2 visa is for the spouse or child of an L-1 visa holder. The spouse or child must be coming to the United States to live with the L-1 visa holder while they work.
What is the Intracompany Transfer Process?
To apply for an ICT visa, you must first have your employer file a petition on your behalf with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Once the petition is approved, you can then apply for a visa at a U.S. consulate or embassy in your home country. If you’re already in the United States on another type of visa, you can usually apply to change your status to an ICT visa without having to leave the country.
The ICT visa process is generally quicker and easier than other employment-based visa processes since the petitioning employer does not need to go through the labor certification process. However, there are a few key requirements that must be met in order for an ICT petition to be approved. We can help you determine if you meet the requirements and help you gather the necessary documentation.
