    L-1 visa is a non-immigrant visa that allows international companies to send executives, managers, and employees with specialized knowledge to the US branch of their businesses. These intracompany transferees should have worked for the international location of the business at least a year in the last three years. The L-1 visa can also be used by an international company to open a business in the US.

    Compared to H-1B visa, the number of L-1 visas issued each fiscal year has no limit. Each year, more than 100,000 L visas are given by the USCIS. That includes L-1 and  L-2 visas. According to 2015 and 2016 data, the total number of L visas issued were more than 160,000 each year. In both of these years, L-2 visa holders outnumbered the principal L-1 visa holders. Most of the L visa holders came from Europe and Asia.
