A new US policy that goes into effect September 11, 2018, will make it much more difficult for foreign tech workers to be approved for a US Work Visa. According to Bloomberg,
agents will be able to deny applications deemed incomplete or containing errors, without first asking applicants to address the flaw or warning them of an intent to refuse their submission. Recently the agency also widened the range of cases for which it could begin the process of removing foreign nationals to include those whose immigration benefits, such as work status, have been denied.
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services received 105,000 more H-1B applications than it can grant, reports the National Foundation for American Policy. In addition, the United States Department of Homeland Security is proposing rules changes to eliminate work permits for spouses of some US visa holders.
Canada is actively recruiting skilled and educated immigrants to help build the Canadian economy and create jobs, and has created many programs to attract tech immigrants to Canada.
Canada wants tech immigrants to help build a stronger economy and create jobs for Canadians. Calgary immigration lawyer Evelyn Ackah says Canada is a highly desirable destination for high-tech immigrants:
I work with skilled immigrants who want to move to Canada to work or build their business and help build a stronger Canada. Our quality of life and values in Canada are very appealing to skilled immigrants and entrepreneurs who want to move to Canada. Our cost of living, education system and healthcare are competitive or better than those in the US.
To help you have the best chance to be invited and selected to move to Canada, a Canadian immigration lawyer can help you avoid mistakes and guide you through the application process.
