    How many HK DE experienced employees got visas to stay and for how long ?
    I believe the management has no need for a visa since they come and go to Europe frequently and are not residing.

    I'd guess Germans assigned to Columbus, GA long term would qualify for hazard pay. Bet you can't get a decent wienerschnitzel within 500 miles of Columbus. lol Imagine the culture shock those poor bastards will have to endure!

    A Visa is not exclusive to residence status, relative to your citizenship it is a customs/immig doc as-required at US Port of Entry. As a US passport holder, I never needed a Visa to enter Europe/Asia during my semiconductor days.
    I wouldn't be surprised if Germans didn't need a Visa either, if they did a Co sponsored work Visa holds weight = economic investment for the US (ie money talks). The port Immig Officer would proabably give them a 5yr stay.

    Wasn't my meaning to make this a visa thread, but a foreigner needs a work visa to work here. It's public record. My question is how many German HK machinists and such are building our guns?

    Off topic… Yes/no, German execs who come for a 2-day meeting are ‘working’. The questions is, what are the Visa regs for German citizens.

    As many workers are required to move the main/pilot line. It’s a matter of scale = number of widgets at end of line.

    L-1 (intra-company transferees)
    An L-1 visa is required if you are the employee of an international company which is temporarily transferring you to a parent branch, affiliate, or subsidiary of the same company in the United States. The international company may be either a U.S. or foreign organization. To qualify for an L-1 visa, you must be at the managerial or executive level, or have specialized knowledge and be destined to a position within the U.S. company at either of these levels, although not necessarily in the same position as held previously. In addition, you must have been employed outside the United States with the international company continuously for one year within the three years preceding your application for admission into the United States. You may only apply for an L-1 visa after your U.S. Company or affiliate has received an approved petition from USCIS, either on a "blanket" or individual basis.

    Apply for a U.S. Visa | Work Visa - Germany (English)

    2) Specialized Knowledge Staff (L1B)
    This category covers those with knowledge of the company's products/services, research, systems, proprietary techniques, management, or procedures. Staff in this category are issued an L1B visa, initially for three years extendible to a maximum of five years.

    I don't disagree.
    Albeit in the late 90's, I've worked in Stuttgart (and with Japanese colleagues/citizens in the US). The German/Japanese/Korean execs who came had nothing but their non-US/Visa foreign passports, stamped with a US Port of Entry I-94 record.
    Given immig law, our lawyers handled these. I see the blanket L-1. Where is the subsection for Germans/Germany (or Japan/S.Korea/Taiwan/etc.)?

    I'll try 1 more time. I actually had a company with Visa required employees, have met with lawyers, read what was copy and pasted.
    Buuut, can anyone, or does anyone know HOW MANY HK employees from Germany are here, at the plant, making our guns?
    This is not an immigration issue or troll. My thoughts are that if they sent a team of experienced employees, and the parts are the same, we shouldn't see any difference.
    It also would be helpful for all the posts I see questioning the qc issue. As some have posted, a German HK45C is preferred over the US made. I'd like to see more than anecdotal evidence. The line employment figure would be enlightening.
