United States Immigration Lawyers In Vancouver

Record numbers of Canadian citizens are applying for United States work permits and United States immigration every year. Even when the economy is not booming, there will always be a need for certain skills and qualities that will be found in Canadians. If you are considering heading over to the United States either on a work permit or permanently, there are different ways you can do this. 

Ways to immigrate to the United States from Canada

If you currently live in Vancouver and want to immigrate to or work within the United States, there are many options available to Canadians. Some options are available just for Canadians (and citizens of Mexico) such as the TN Visa – a special type of work visa for Canadian citizens who have a job offer in the United States already, and who work in a certain position that generally requires a high level of education.

But if the TN visa doesn’t suit your current situation, there are other work visas that could apply to you, such as the L1 work visa, the H1B work visa, the H2B work visa and more!

Of course, there is also the option of immigrating to the United States permanently instead of just working there on a temporary basis. There are multiple options for doing this, but you need to be aware that these applications are very complicated. You may be able to have your spouse or a close family member sponsor you if they are a green card holder, or an American citizen. Your employer may also be able to sponsor you for a green card.
