Working In the US as a Canadian Citizen
If you are a Canadian Citizen who would like to work in the United States, you need to obtain a United States work visa in order to do so legally. When you obtain a United States work visa, you are able to live and work in the United States for a certain period of time.
If you are a Canadian citizen you have several advantages when it comes to applying for a United States work visa as well. For example, some United States work visas are only available to Canadian citizens, while others can be fast-tracked.
However, the process for obtaining a United States work visa is not an easy one. You will have to make sure that you are applying for the right type of visa, that you are eligible for that visa, that you have the correct education and experience for that visa and finally that your application is what visa officers are looking for.
Which United States work visa is right for me?
Determining which United States work visa is right for you may require the assistance of a licensed immigration lawyer. This is because it is not always easy to decide if you meet the requirements for a certain type of United States work visa if it is your first time applying.
In addition, it is vital that you understand which United States work visa you need to apply for the correct visa, because if you do not you could be denied. If you are denied for a United States work visa, it could have a negative impact on subsequent visa applications when you finally do apply for the right type of work visa.
