H1-B Visa Insight

Round up on H-1B Visa Application, Lawyers, Reforms, Transfers etc.

Sunday, December 21, 2008

It is true that several Indian companies prefer L-1 US Visa over H-1B work permit. L-1 Visas permitted intra-company transfers for managers / executives / specialists in some chosen vertical. L-1 visa holders salary may not be the same as paid to persons in similar positions in USA.

Additionally, there is no restriction on the number of L-1 visas issued during a year and does not require the visa holder to be a graduate. However, in the past decade Indian software programmers were the largest beneficiaries of L-1 Visa and was severely criticized by several American Senators and Congressmen for the misuse.

Also it is not easy to go for your Greencard from an L-1 Visa. So demand a H-1B Visa from your employer in India if you are really bent upon working in the US.
