My firm is planning to apply for a L1-A visa. Is there any benefit of this if I already have a green card?

Very confused, why do you need visa to work if you already have green card? Which by default gives you authorization to work. Maybe I am missing something, but it doesn’t make sense at the surface.

Pretty sure you can’t have multiple ‘statuses’ in the US. Be careful about how you approach it or you might jeopardise your green card. That’s the one you should be entering on but seek legal advice before going into any L-1 business.

Thanks M1, will do.

B1 - Np, I’ll provide some context. The US firm wasn’t aware that I already had a green card when they decided to transfer me over to the US. I am still employed and working at the overseas firm outside the US. In order to commence the transfer, the firm’s US immigration team just reached out to apply for L1-A visa. My green card is conditional for the next 2 years because it is via EB-5. This is why I am considering if I can / should also get a L1-A to be on the safe side?

Which firm ?

Pdubs

please deal with PwC Immigration very very carefully

EB-5 is for business owners or investors
