Are TN Visas and other US Work Permits like L-1 and E-2 Business Visas still being issued for Canadians during this economic crisis?

As you all know, we are in the midst of a economic recession on both the US and Canadian side of the borders. Unemployment is up, business profits are down and people are rightly concerned about their futures. Many of our clients are asking about whether the US is still “open for business” for Canadians wishing to get US Work Permits like TN Visas, L-1 or E-2 Visas to the US.

Well the good news is that the answer is a resounding “Yes”! We are still seeing a high volume of applications for US Visas from qualified Canadians wishing to live and work in the US. It seems that despite the recession, US Employers are still and always will be in search of qualified and competent workers and Canadians certainly fit the bill!  We at Niren and Associates Immigration Lawyers are proud to be a part of the Visa process for our Canadian clients who, in most cases, report great success in the US.
