Case Study: L-1A Status Granted to Canadian Executive

Recently, Berardi Immigration Law was retained by a high-level Canadian executive who was stopped by CBP at the pre-flight inspection in Toronto.  This individual, who had been entering the U.S. once or twice a month was aggressively questioned in secondary inspection and missed his flight.  Reluctant to attempt entry again, he was unable to appear for several key meetings in the U.S.
Rosanna Berardi reviewed the facts and concluded that because there were affiliated Canadian and U.S. corporations, the business person qualified for L-1A, intra-company transferee status.
To demonstrate that our client qualified for L-1A status, our highly trained staff prepared the requisite forms and a letter outlining the basis for eligibility.  This included comprehensive supporting documentation to further strengthen the case.

When the documentation was complete, Ms. Berardi appeared at the Peace Bridge with our client and submitted the package to CBP.  Our client’s petition was approved and L-1A status was issued right then and there.
