Top 3 Reasons Why the Moment to Apply for Your L-1A Visa is NOW

1. The Current U.S. Administration Is Pro-Immigration

Since President Joe Biden took office in 2021, his administration has lifted many restrictions that drastically reduced the number of visas issued to immigrants. Under former President Trump, rates of legal immigration were reduced by an estimated 49%, with significant impacts on U.S. economy. As Americans continue to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s clear that U.S. leadership aims to reverse that Trump-era trend. The current White House administration is committed to the data-driven belief that immigrants help the U.S. economy by slowing inflation, increasing economic growth, and creating more jobs. In fact, the U.S. is currently in a labor shortage, that many reputable experts in positions of authority believe could be solved through rising immigration rates.

2. New Year, New You, New Country!

The New Year is always a time of transition–looking back on what came before, and what still lies ahead. That makes it the perfect time to plan your immigration goals. Like most resolutions, the immigration process takes time, patience, and commitment. By getting started early, and sticking with it diligently, it’s entirely possible to finalize your U.S. immigration plans by the third quarter of the year. Most importantly, the highest-volume months for immigration attorneys and business plan companies are between May - September. Don’t be like the people that wait until spring to start a summer body exercise routine. Get a jumpstart by making your immigration plans your first priority in the New Year.

3. Consulates Are Gradually Re-Opening

Closures during the COVID-19 pandemic have created a massive backlog of cases that still need processing. But as we head into 2023, consulates have finally been able to safely re-open and begin resuming normal duties. There’s still a lot of work to be done to catch up with backlogged cases, which draws out the long wait for immigration decisions. But the earlier you start, the earlier your case will be processed. If you truly want to live and work in the U.S., there’s no better time to start your immigration plan than right now.
