Immigration Lawyer Evelyn Ackah Presents to Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of BC September 27, 2017

Have you ever considered working in the United States and not sure how to begin? Calgary Immigration Lawyer Evelyn Ackah, founder and managing lawyer at Ackah Business Immigration Law, will speak to the APEGBC: Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of British Columbia:

  • Wednesday, September 27, 2017
  • 8:30 AM-9:00 AM: Registration and Continental Breakfast
    9:00 AM-10:30 AM: NAFTA Requirement for Working in the U.S.
  • Vancouver, BC
  • Registration: www.apeg.bc.ca/Events/

Under NAFTA law, certain professionals like engineers, geoscientists, and engineering technicians can often obtain “Trade NAFTA” (TN) Visas to work in the United States (U.S.), once they receive an employment offer from an appropriate U.S. employer. Alternatively, experienced professionals may be engaged as “consultants” under NAFTA rules and share their expertise with U.S.-based businesses. This seminar will review all viable U.S. immigration options for Canadian and Mexican professionals.

Seminar Objectives:

  • How to obtain a U.S. Work Permit to work as a temporary worker.
  • How to obtain a U.S. Work Permit to provide consulting services.
  • What information and documentation is needed to legally work in the U.S.
  • NAFTA Professionals List to determine which professional designations qualify under NAFTA.
