The DOS recently published a final rule changing the way it would determine the validity dates it would issue for an L-1 visa. L visas will now be issued with validity periods based on the visa reciprocity schedule. The prior  rule limited L visas to the petition validity period, as shown on the I-797 approval notice issued by the USCIS.
