L-1 granted at Canadian border with waiver.Published: Aug 9, 2010 3:15 pm
Our client is a Canadian citizen. He is a 50% owner of a small business in Canada and a 50% owner of a small business in the United States. We obtained L-1A Executive Intracompany Transferee Status on his behalf to act as manager of the U. S. business.
Unfortunately, he is temporarily inadmissible to the U. S. because he accumulated unlawful presence when he was previously in the United States. In order for him to be admissible in L-1A status, we applied for and received a Nonimmigrant Waiver of Inadmissibility on his behalf.
We presented him at the border with the appropriate Petition and supporting documentation. The L-1A Petition was approved in less than two hours, valid for three years. His wife and child were likewise admitted in L-2 status.
