This quote is from the following USCIS webpage under the row for Multinational manager or executive:
You must have been employed outside the United States in the 3 years preceding the petition for at least 1 year by a firm or corporation and you must be seeking to enter the United States to continue service to that firm or organization. Your employment must have been outside the United States in a managerial or executive capacity and with the same employer, an affiliate, or a subsidiary of the employer. [Emphasis added.]
This is what the government website says. What website are you quoting?
I found the same language on another website as well but I cannot yet find it in a USCIS website. Please give me some time to research this further.
I have found nothing on USCIS websites that support what the author of the blog says about being able to work outside the US as an executive or manager for the employer, its parent company, subsidiary, or affiliate for at least one of the three years before entering the US as an executive manager. The language says that you must have been an executive manager for a least one of the three years in the 3 years preceding the petition.
I even asked the person who wrote the blog that you read and no one has responded yet.
I will continue to look for support for what happens if the applicant worked outside the US as an executive manager for at least a year but wants to apply for the EB-1(C) more than 3 years after transferring to the US company.
In the meantime, please go ahead and rate me. I get no credit for my work for you until you.
