How to Get a Work Visa for the US

Are you interested in getting a work visa for the US? Working in the United States appeals to many, but first you would need a work visa.

It is generally easier for Canadians to obtain a work visa for the US than for citizens of other countries to get a work visa for the US. Thanks to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), Canadians and businesses that are looking to enter US markets can have their visas fast-tracked.

However, if you are NOT Canadian there are of course lots of options!

Some examples of the work visas for the US include:

TN Work Visa – this US work visa is for Canadians and Mexicans. For Canadian’s TN Visas can be applied for at the border.

L-1 Work Visa – this is another work visa for Canadians and others Foreign Nationals that that wish to expand their business into the US market.

E2 Work Visa – this is a US work visa obtained by investing in the US.

Other work visas include:

H-1B Specialty Occupations

H-2B Non-Agricultural Workers

E-1 Treaty Traders and E-2 Treaty Investors

J-1 Visa for Education and Cultural Exchange

I had an excellent experience working with Visa Place, communicating with them was very easy. I initially tried to navigate my immigration issue personally, but it was much more efficient allowing everything to be handled by the experts. Thank you so much Sarah, Lauren, Natasha, and Sukhi for all of your help!
