L Visa Arrest Consequences
L visas are non-immigrant visas issued for relatively short periods of time but up to about 7 years. They are available to corporate employees of multinational entities with offices in the US and elsewhere. As with other visas, being arrested can lead to immigration problems and trouble reentering the US. Because holding the visa and being able to freely enter the US is an essential part of the visa holder’s work responsibilities, an arrest can trigger immigration and employment problems. If you are in the US on a L visa and you’ve been arrested, it will be critical to obtain the right outcome in criminal court while also carefully complying with your employer’s policies.
