What are the advantages of an L visa versus an H1B? Vice versa?

Also, contact the US Consulate Office in the country your friends are traveling from.

H1B Specialty Occupation Visas

This is a visa for people coming to the USA to work for a US employer in a professional-level position. Valid for 3 years initially, can be extended to 6.

Candidate Requirements:

Candidate must have secured job offer from a US source.
In order to get an H1B visa you will need the equivalent of a US college or university degree in a relevant subject.

If you have been educated outside the US, this requirement can often be met by:

EITHER - A non-US and/or only partly relevant degree, followed by three or more years work experience.

OR – Twelve years of high-level work experience.

If you wish to practice a profession such as law, medicine, or accountancy, etc, you will also need to obtain the relevant State or Federal license to practice in the place of intended employment.

The L1A for Executive/Managerial staff
