Are You A Canadian Who Can't Cross The Border to Your Job in the United States?

Blog posted on by Evelyn Ackah in Cross-Border Business and U.S. Immigration

Are You A Canadian Who Can't Cross The Border to Your Job in the United States?

Are you a Canadian who's job is in the U.S? What's at risk if you DON'T hire a business immigration lawyer? Immigration rules and procedures are changing almost daily in Canada and the United States. A Canadian who can't cross the border to their job in the U.S. can lose critical time, money and opportunities if you can't cross the border to enter the country.

Another Ackah Law Client Success Story

Are You A Canadian Who Couldn't Cross The Border to Your Job in the United States?

While the borders are closed due to the COVID crisis, a Canadian client contacted us to get his 3-year NAFTA L-1 visa. After securing his visa, Ackah Law was able to help him cross the border into North Dakota on the weekend. His construction job means over 100 new U.S. jobs will be created!

On a Saturday night, everyone at Ackah Law pitched in to make sure our client got the results he needed and was able to cross borders seamlessly.

The L-1 visa is an intra-company transfer. It is a non-immigrant classification that enables a U.S. employer to transfer an executive or manager from one of its affiliated foreign offices to one of its offices in the United States; It is also a classification that would allow a foreign company without a U.S. office to send one of their executives to the U.S. to open such an office.
