No matter what, Canadians need to use the proper legal immigration channels in order to immigrate to the United States. This can be a difficult and time-consuming process, so it’s a good idea to speak with a licensed immigration lawyer about your options when you decide to make the move to the United States.

Ways a Canadian can immigrate to the United States

1. Marriage. A Canadian can immigrate to the United States if they marry someone who is a United States citizen or a permanent resident. Marriage for immigration is highly scrutinized, so your marriage must be a legitimate one.

2. Family. Certain family members can sponsor you to immigrate to the United States if they are citizens of the United States themselves. Only certain kinds of family members can apply to sponsor you, and they must be able to demonstrate their relation to you.

3. Work. Work visas are a way to live and work in the United States temporarily. However, your employer can petition you for permanent residency in some situations.

4. Investing. You can also invest in the United States in order to move to the United States.

Speak with a licensed immigration lawyer to learn which of these options would be best for you, and for assistance in preparing your immigration application so that it is what immigration officers are looking for.

Great law firm with great staff. My lawyer Rania did a great job for my Canadian work permit and my daughters study permit. You are great in your work. And my Para Legal officer Alicea, you are just amazing. They did not rest until my job was promptly and properly done. Always there to answer my calls, reply my emails promptly. She tried her best and the results were amazing. I recommend visa place if you need the best immigration job. Many thanks to Rania and Alicea.

I am grateful for the legal services that I got from Sanaa and Alicea of Visa Place. I was impressed by their client centered approach. Their professionalism involved their hearts and heads to work on my case. I cannot compare the time they spent on it with the money I paid. All they wanted was a fine final document. I also liked their prompt communication. They are really passionate about what they do.
