Austin is the fourth-largest city and the capital of the U.S. state of Texas. Located in Central Texas, Austin is the 13th most populous city in the United States of America at 820,611 people, and was the third-fastest-growing large city in the United States from 2000 to 2006.
In the 1830s, pioneers began to settle the area in central Austin along the Colorado River. The city grew throughout the 19th century and became a center for government and education with the construction of the Texas State Capitol and the University of Texas at Austin. After a lull in growth from the Great Depression, Austin resumed its development into a major city and, by the 1980s, it emerged as a center for technology and business.
“The state of our city today is the strongest it has ever been in our 173-year history, and it’s getting stronger every day” - Austin’s Mayor Lee Leffingwell
During Austin’s recent population growth, it has established itself as strong economic and cultural center.

Dell’s worldwide headquarters is located in nearby Round Rock, a suburb of Austin. It is also the home of 85% of American biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies.
Austin’s consistent economic progress has kept its unemployment rate almost 3% below the national average. This is great news for newcomers who are looking for work, as the US Work Visa opportunities for skilled workers, entrepreneurs, investors, and other business people are plentiful.
Under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the doors have been opened for Canadians and businesses seeking to enter the US markets. As a result, TN Visa applications for Canadian businesses and professionals are now being accepted through a streamlined process.

“I wanted you to know that we are grateful for your help regarding Shannon’s “TN” visa. She applied at the Sarnia border on Friday at about 3:30 P.M. The first decision was yes until they realized that Shannon had been denied at the Rainbow Bridge. They would not over-rule that decision until they realized that she had up-dated documents which provided further information. This is what saved her! Shannon flew to California on Saturday and started her new job today! We just wanted to say Thank You and felt this info might be useful in the future. Please tell Stacey we also appreciated her hard work. Thanks again.”
