United States immigration and United States work visas are appealing to many Canadians. Even in an economy that isn’t fully recovered, many skilled Canadians are needed to work in the United States and the United States presents a great opportunity for Canadians who want to live there.
When you want to work in the United States, you have to apply for a United States work visa. There are several different kinds of work visas for the United States, including the TN Visa that is exclusively for Canadian citizens. Some of these visas require specific types of occupations or skill levels, such as the TN Visa or the H1B visa. Other visas are not really related to the specific occupation, but are rather for Canadians (or other foreign nationals) being transferred to a United States office. There are also work visas available for people who want to start or invest in a United States business.
When you want to live in the United States, you have to apply for permanent residency (lawful green card holder status) in the United States. These applications are very different from work visa applications, and there are several different ways to obtain permanent residency in the United States, including having a family member or spouse sponsor you for permanent residency, as well as having an employer sponsor you for permanent residency.
No matter what type of path you choose to use to get to the United States, keep in mind that each has its own complexities and problems that may arise. There are also very different and very strict requirements necessary for all types of United States immigration applications.
