There are several criteria for applying for an L-1 Visa, including:
Like the E-2 visa, there is no provision in the legislation requiring a business plan with your L-1 visa application. Indeed, if you work for larger multinational corporations or huge brands that are household names, you may only require a letter from the company director or minimal information to secure this kind of visa. However, this is definitely not the case for younger or less known businesses. If you are just starting out with your first U.S.-based subsidiary or affiliate of your small to medium-sized overseas business or if you acquiring an established U.S.-based business as a means of expanding into the US market you will need to strengthen your L-1 Visa application by submitting a professional, well-written L-1 visa business plan detailing your plans for expansion to the United States.
