Are you interested in getting a work visa for the US? Working in the United States appeals to many, but first you would need a work visa.

It is generally easier for Canadians to obtain a work visa for the US than for citizens of other countries to get a work visa for the US. Thanks to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), Canadians and businesses that are looking to enter US markets can have their visas fast-tracked.

However, if you are NOT Canadian there are of course lots of options!

Some examples of the work visas for the US include:

TN Work Visa – this US work visa is for Canadians and Mexicans. For Canadian’s TN Visas can be applied for at the border.

L-1 Work Visa – this is another work visa for Canadians and others Foreign Nationals that that wish to expand their business into the US market.

E2 Work Visa – this is a US work visa obtained by investing in the US.

Other work visas include:

H-1B Specialty Occupations

H-2B Non-Agricultural Workers
