  10. Permanent residency (green card):  L-1A transferees (managerial & executive employees) and their dependents are considered “first preference” by US Immigration for the purpose of permanent residency. Since they are considered to be essential to the success of the US company, the US company is not obligated to recruit Americans or demonstrate that Americans are not available to fill the position of the key employee.  All other categories of US work visas that lead to permanent residency (green card) if based on employment, require the approval of the US Department of Labor that must determine that no Americans are willing or able to fill the position in the United States. These types of US permanent residency (green cards) take many years to obtain. Your key employees secure in the knowledge that they will not have to compete with Americans to keep their positions in the US will be more willing to move to the US with their families, and can plan their careers for the long term. Their spouses can legally work and contribute to the advancement of the family.  Furthermore, their family members knowing they will get their US permanent residency (green card) will welcome the move;
  11. Duration of your approved L-Blanket:  First petition will be approved for three (3) years with no need to submit any additional documentation to US Immigration (USCIS).  Before the expiration date of three (3) years, a new petition will need to be submitted which will then be approved indefinitely.

IN CONCLUSION, the Blanket L is specifically designed to make it easier and faster for multinationals to get their key employees transferred in the US within days and not months, which for many multinationals is essential for their operations throughout the world.
