Hi, I am from India. Below is my case.

After that went out of country for 1 year 6 months and joined MNC as a manager level candidate in India and came to USA with the same role with the same company.

You look like you could be, but there is much more to a successful L-1A petition than receiving general answers on a general forum such as this. Such questions should be posed directly to your EMPLOYER'S immigration lawyers. Only they will know the Company, business and other factors, as well as the job position to give you a meaningful opinion.

Behar Intl. Counsel 619.234.5962 Kindly be advised that the answer above is only general in nature cannot be construed as legal advice, given that not enough facts are known. It is your responsibility to retain a lawyer to analyze the facts specific to your particular situation in order to give you specific advice. Specific answers will require cognizance of all pertinent facts about your case. Any answers offered on Avvo are of a general nature only, and are not meant to create an attorney-client relationship.


You seem to meet the basic elements of an L1A, which may lead to an EB1, green card application. Definitely consult with an immigration attorney. If your employer does not have one, or if you are to choose, then have the attorney communicate with you and your company, perhaps in a conference call.

You do qualify if you worked for the foreign company in a management position for 1 year of the past 3 years
