Work visas for the United States

By Michael Niren April 28, 2013 (Updated April 6, 2020) 1 min. read
visas that do not require a job offer

If you are a Canadian citizen or other foreign national, you must apply for a work visa before you are able to work legally in the United States. In most of these cases you must have an existing job offer, but that is not always the case.

There are many different types of United States work visas available, some of which are available exclusively to Canadian citizens.

Which United States work visa is right for me?

Determining which United States work visa is right for you can be a complicated process. For example, each of the work visas that are available has a different requirement and is meant for different situations.

If you are a Canadian citizen, you may find that the TN visa is right for you if you have a job offer in a certain type of application. This visa is only available for Canadian citizens under the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA.

There is also the H1B work visa, which is for individuals who have a job offer in a certain type of specialty occupation, which is an occupation that requires special skills or knowledge.

Applicants may also consider the E2 visa, which is an investor visa. Some E visas can even result in permanent residence in the United States.

If you are a Canadian or other foreign national who is being transferred to the United States, you can consider applying for an L-1 visa.

As you can see, there are many different types of visas that are available, and depending on your situation you may find one that is perfect for you. However, if you apply for one that you are not eligible for an are denied, this can have an effect on future applications.

Truly a very systematic, professional and pleasant team. My student file was with Gunjan and Yasmeen. They handled my case so well, always replied to all my queries and really did the best they can to keep me calm during the process. Yasmeen is truly very professional and completed my application in a timely and very organized manner. Would definitely recommend this organization to everyone.

When you get the opportunity to go to the US for work from abroad, then I would say VisaPlace would be your best option to get all your documents in place. My 5 star feedback is based on the help I received from Danielle Grbic as she was really professional, I would straight away ask for Danielle to be in charge of your process. From the time that Danielle took over my case I felt confident that it will go well and at the end it went smoother than expected. On my own I would never have been able to get this internal work transfer done as a L1 visa and was best for the professionals to take charge. After arriving in the US, Danielle was still happy to assist with documents and advise. A huge thanks to Danielle and VisaPlace

I spoke with Lilly last week and she’s incredible. Very informative and you can tell she definably cares about her job. She wasn’t pushy at all and she’s there to help you figure out if this service is right for you. I’d recommend contacting VisaPlace if you’re thinkin of traveling internationally and you have questions about the different types of permits.

I had a great experience with Andrew Diamond from The Visa Place. Andrew was very knowledgable and helped us every step of the way. When we had a discrepancy with my spouse’s Visa Andrew helped us navigate the system in the USA. He even offered to speak directly to the customs and border control officer to help us iron out the situation. Overall the experience was very good and smooth. I highly recommend Andrew and his services at The Visa Place.
