When faced with a legal problem, consulting with an attorney sooner rather than later will often save you time, trouble, and money in the end.
Commonly known as the intercompany transferee visa. The key to this visa is that a) a U.S. corporation has an affiliate or subsidiary overseas and b) 51% of the shares of both the corporation abroad and the U.S. Corporation are held by the same person or corporation. The two companies must continue to exist, with virtually the same corporate structure, through out the validity of the visa. This is a somewhat difficult scenario to maintain in our world of mergers and acquisitions. The employee must be at the executive or managerial level, or have specialized knowledge. Prior to entry to the U.S. he or she must have worked for one year in the last three years for the foreign company. (See Antonia’s Lines Fall 1999 Issue) PROS: Quick turn around time and if the U.S. Corporation has been actively doing business for more than one year the employee can obtain permanent residence immediately. CONS: Time consuming as there is a serious paper trail unless the U.S. Company has a published annual report. In addition corporate ownership is not always simple to trace.
