Which United States Work Visa Do I Need?


Did you know that if you are a foreign national who wants to work in the United States, you must first obtain a United States work visa? These work visas are necessary to work legally in the United States as a foreign national, even if you are a Canadian citizen.

However, it’s not as if there is one United States work visa that you can apply for if you need to work in the United States. There are multiple types of United States work visas, each applicable to certain situations. Finding out which United States visa is right for you can be tricky, but there may be one that is perfect for you!

Deciding on a United States Work Visa

There are many different types of United States work visas, even work visas just for Canadian citizens like the TN visa. This visa is for people who have a job offer already in a certain type of professional occupation, which is one that requires a higher level of skill or education.

There are also H1B visas, which are for specialty occupations. Specialty occupations generally require a university education and a specific type of skill or work experience.

There are also visas that are completely different, like E-visas for investors or traders from certain countries, as well as L-visas for people who are being transferred from a foreign company to a branch or subsidiary in the United States.
