Yes, it is referred to as L-1 Work Visa.
Applying for an L-1 Work Visa involves 2 steps:
- Step 1: The employer must file a petition with USCIS requesting an approval for L-1 classification (to authorise employee to work in the US).
- Step 2: Once the L-1 petition is approved, the employee can apply for an L-1 visa at a US Representation abroad.
The L-1 (ICT) work visa itself is divided in 2 categories: L-1A visas and L-1B visas.
L-1A visas: are for employees who are coming to the U.S. in a managerial function. These employees manage either people or processes. It is not necessary for these employees to currently be managers to be eligible for L-1A visa classification but the proposed U.S. job MUST be a managerial position.
L-1B visas: are for employees who are coming to the U.S. and who have highly specialised (‘critical’) skills.
