US Business Visas for Canadians

US Business Visas for Canadians

We are contacted every day from Canadians wishing to work or visit the US. Depending on a person’s circumstances, there are different US Visas that may be appropriate for them in terms of entering the US.

Visas for Working in the USA

For the purpose of working in the US, that is, actually earning an income and engaging with the US labor market directly in the US, a US Work Visa would be required. For Canadians, the US Work Visa options are as follows:

1. TN Visa (NAFTA): For Canadian citizens can have up to a 3-year work visa for professionals with US job or contract offers;

2. H-1B Visa: For people with “specialty occupations” usually university degree holders. This visa is subject to an annual quota.

3. L-1 Visa (Inter-company Transfers)

4. E-2 Investor Visa: For People wishing to invest in and actively manage a US Business

5. O-1 Visa: A US Work Visa for people of “Extraordinary Ability”, usually for applicants in the arts or for athletes

There are other US Work visas such as J-1, and R-1 visas and others but they are less common.

US Business Visitors

For those wishing to visit the US for business purposes but not work directly in the US, Canadians can be admitted as B-1 Visitors. B-1 entries are for those attending meetings, negotiating contracts, and in some case installing or servicing US companies pursuant to after sales contacts.

Great preliminary consultation meeting with Manasi. She offered good immigration options keeping my requirements in mind and answered any queries I could think of. Would definitely consider going ahead with her for my immigration needs.

I had an incredibly easy and convenient experience at VisaPlace! Mansi, who assisted me, was extremely friendly and patient. She provided immediate solutions and was exceptionally kind. Immigration issues can be very challenging, but Mansi made me feel understood and supported, sharing in my struggle and making the process much easier for me. I highly recommend this place!

My initial call was much more informative and helpful than I had imagined it could be. It’s a daunting task to undertake moving to another country, and it was very useful to be able to discuss it with someone who is clear thinking, capable, articulate as well as patient. Well worth it!

I recently booked an appointment for immigration consultancy through VisaPlace, and I am thoroughly impressed with their service. Anis Doba, who assisted me over the phone, was exceptionally helpful and pleasant. He made the entire process smooth and efficient, demonstrating a high level of professionalism and customer care.

Anis patiently answered all my questions, provided clear information, and ensured I understood the next steps. His friendly demeanor and thorough knowledge significantly alleviated my concerns and made me feel confident about the consultancy process.

I highly recommend VisaPlace to anyone seeking immigration consultancy. Their staff, especially Anis Doba, exemplifies excellent customer service and expertise. Thank you, VisaPlace, for a great experience!
