The U.S. has several work visa categories that are intended to provide access to the U.S. market. These include:
When determining whether or not you qualify for a U.S. work visa, it is necessary that we evaluate each category and then assess which classification of U.S. work visa is most appropriate given your job position, qualifications and time lines for entering the U.S.
Canadians have several options for applying for U.S. work visas quickly. Due to the NAFTA, Canadians can apply for TN Visa and L-1 visas directly at a U.S. port of entry. Non-Canadian applicant’s will still have access to the U.S., but are not allowed to apply directly at the port of entry.
Intra-Company Transferee (L-1): You may qualify for this visa if your company is transferring you to a new or existing branch office in the United States.
Professional/Consultant (TN): You may qualify for this visa if you are a Canadian who has been offered a professional job position by a U.S. employer, or if you are consulting to a U.S. company.
Entrepreneur (E): You may qualify for this visa if you are interested in establishing a U.S. business, purchasing an existing U.S. business, or if your current business is engaged in significant trade with the U.S.
