US Work Permits and Visas for Canadians and Other Nationals.
For Canadians and other nationals wishing to work in the US, it is necessary to apply for a US Work Visa. There are a number of US work visas available for Canadians. Under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), USA Visa procedures have been made easier for Canadians to work in the United States.
NAFTA has opened the doors for Canadians and businesses seeking to enter the U.S markets. Large corporations, small businesses and professionals can apply for US Work Visas on a “fast track” basis. However, getting a US Work Visa is not as easy as it seems. And the stakes are high. If your application is refused, your case will be permanently recorded on the US Immigration database. Therefore it is essential to get it right the first time!

What if I am not Canadian? Can I still apply for a US Work Visa?
Any foreign national can apply for a US work visa. However, if you are not Canadian or Mexican, you will not be eligible to apply for a TN Visa under NAFTA. However, other US Work visas such as L-1, E-2, H-1B are certainly open to you.
