Things to know when a Canadian works in the United States

Canadians are welcome to work in the United States if they have obtained the appropriate visa to do so. There is a long list of different types of United States work visas and they all suit different purposes. Canadians Working in the United States

There are two major factors any Canadian needs to keep in mind before they decide to work in the United States.

When A Canadian Works in the United States

A Canadian who wishes to work in the United States needs to be aware of two things. The first is that the majority of work permits or work visas in the United States are temporary, meaning they will usually only last for a few years before you must either renew them or return to Canada.

This means that when you apply for your United States work visa, you must be prepared to prove to the visa officers that you will be returning to Canada at the end of your work. You can do this by showing them evidence of your strong ties to Canada, which can be in the form of documents that show your assets in Canada, information about your immediate family in Canada or information about your employment in Canada.

The second most important thing a Canadian who wants to work in the United States needs to know is that if there is something wrong with your work visa application and it is denied, it can have a negative effect on any future work visa applications you submit.

This is why it is so important that when you are submitting an application to work in the United States, you need to get it right the first time.

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.
