The L-1 Intracompany Transferee Visa is a very nice work visa for those persons who either have their own business outside the U.S. or work for a company that has an office outside the U.S. and wants to buy or purchase a branch office inside the U.S.
It is generally the one you would get if you are an entrepreneur and/or have some specialty skill for a company you have experience working at outside the U.S. In addition to the actual visa petition itself, there are several parts to the L-1 which must be prepared and submitted such as the incorporation documents, proof of the foreign corporation and the business plan.
