Canadian Citizens Working In The United States

Canadian working in United StatesDid you know that Canadian citizens are allowed to work in the United States? However, they will require a United States work visa in order to do so. This is a special type of temporary visa that will allow you to work and live in the United States for a temporary period of time legally.

Requirements for Canadian Citizens Working In The United States

In most cases, you will need to work in a certain type of position to obtain a work visa for the United States, but being a Canadian citizen who is applying for a United States work visa has its advantages. For example, there are certain types of visas that are only available to Canadian citizens, while other types of visas can be obtained faster.

However, just because you are a Canadian Citizen and your work visa could be fast-tracked this does not mean that it is any easier to obtain a United States work visa. It can be a very difficult process as there are certain things that visa officers will be looking for. For the best results in obtaining a United States work visa, please contact our immigration law firm for assistance.

Which United States Work Visa Is Best For Me?

The United States work visa that is right for you depends greatly on your own personal situation. For example, if you are being transferred to an office in the United States that is a branch or subsidiary of your current employer in Canada, you could be eligible for the L1 work visa.

If you are being offered a job in the United States and you have a very high level of education, you could apply for the TN Visa or the H1B work visa. The list of jobs for both of these types of visa is very specific and while the H1B work visa applications are only accepted during certain times of the year, there is no limit on the TN visas.
