OK, great, thanks a lot! :)
Hello there again,
I would like to ask you for a clarification on the L-1A visa which is for the executives/managers. Can a director of a company who is not on the payroll but is paid as a contractor qualify for the L-1A visa? This director acts as a CEO and is able to prove that on many levels. Basically without his presence in the company, all the contractors/employees would not know what to do.
What sort of evidence would the immigration look for to support his role?
This director is the only director in the company, so who can file out the Form I-129 for him if he is the employer? I mean who normally files out this form in the company? CPA?
Thanks a lot!
yes, he has worked for the company since its formation(over 5 years).Actuaylly, he was even on a payroll, but since moving to a different country, he no longer can be on the payroll given the fact that he lost the residency in that country, hence working as a contractor.
he was actually on a payroll until march 2012
ok, thanks a lot!
