L-1B Specialized Knowledge Worker

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Over the last few years, approvals of L-1B cases have become particularly difficult.  An L-1B (Intra-Company Transfer Visa) petitioner retained us after receiving a Request for Evidence from USCIS requiring additional proof that the beneficiary had specialized knowledge and that the job duties required an individual with unique knowledge of the petitioner’s complex technology.  We provided documentation to show that the beneficiary had skills that could not be obtained in the open market.  We were also able to show that, within the petitioner’s employee pool, the beneficiary was unique and had gained specialized knowledge through training and years of hands-on experience with the technology.  

USCIS agreed with our arguments and approved the petition.
