Want to Work in the US? Get there with a L1 visa
To all those who applied for an H-1B visa to the US and did not get granted one, do not fret, you could still get to work and live in the United States under other visa permits.

Immigration to the US by people looking for a new start, furthering their career or joining their family, is consistently popular, especially because of economic opportunity and the diversity of the country itself.
The H-1B visa is an extremely popular visa which allows US companies to employ foreign talent. This visa service allows an employer in the United States to employ foreign workers in speciality occupations for a period of up to six years.
“Almost every skilled migrant want the H-1B visa in order to work in the US, but there is such a limit on the amount of people who get accepted, these people should look at other options too,” says Liam Clifford of www.globalvisas.com. “People often forget that the L1 visa is a useful alternative.”
The L1 visa allows those foreigners working for international companies who have an office in the US to transfer an employee to their US office.
Applying for an American L1 visa is generally a much quicker process than making an application for lawful permanent residence in the USA, or as it is more commonly known, A USA Green Card application.
Whether from Canada, India or even South Africa US conglomerates, such as Microsoft, are constantly in search of skilled workers, particularly in highly technical like IT. If these companies have offices abroad and within the US, then it is much easier to fill skills shortages.
An L1 visa can also be utilised where an employee of a foreign company is migrating to the United States in order to set up a new branch or subsidiary in America.
