To recruit and hire foreign nationals, employers must acquire the proper visas including L-1, O-1, and P-1 visas. MC @ FC Law’s immigration lawyers can evaluate your unique situation and determine the proper validation to fit your hiring needs. We advise U.S.-based businesses and professionals around the world about their visa and immigration options, and we serve companies and individuals by facilitating and coordinating the visa application process.
THE L-1 VISA FOR TRADITIONAL EMPLOYEES
The L-1 validation is designed for foreign nationals who work for multinational businesses and who need to enter the U.S. to work at a branch, subsidiary, parent, or affiliate office. Applicants for L-1 visas must be individuals in a management, executive, or specialized knowledge position.
THE O-1 VISA FOR EXTRAORDINARY INDIVIDUALS
The O-1 validation is reserved for those foreign nationals with extraordinary skill in the areas of art, science, education, business, or athletics or for individuals with a record of extraordinary achievement in the film or television industries. To be considered “extraordinary,” an individual must demonstrate that he or she is one of a small number of persons at the top of their field or profession.
THE P-1 VISA FOR ATHLETES AND ENTERTAINERS
Foreign nationals who are part of a professional sports team or who compete individually at the professional level may qualify for a P-1 visa. This validation is also designed for entertainers performing as part of a company or troupe. Usually, individual entertainers and athletes are not eligible for a P-1 validation unless they are joining their team or company after its arrival in the United States.
