L-1A visas are very similar to L-1B visas in that they both allow employers to transfer foreign employees to the United States. Where these two types of visas differ, however, is in their purpose, length of stay, and eligibility for permanent residency. L-1B visas are reserved for professionals with specialized knowledge related to an organization’s interests and can be extended to a maximum five year stay, as opposed to the L-1A visa’s seven year maximum. While L-1A visa holders may file for a Green Card in the EB-1 category, L-1B visa holders must apply for labor certification under categories EB-2 or EB-3 prior to applying for permanent residency.
