Eligibility of H-1B Visa Holders for an Intra-Company Transfer to Canada2018-02-09
Often current US H-1B visa holders qualify for an intra-company transfer, and it can be part of their journey to become a permanent resident of Canada. Canada is actively recruiting highly educated and trained immigrants, especially in high technology fields, and wants to keep qualified applicants as permanent residents.
To be eligible for an Intra-Company Transfer to Canada:
- You must have at least one year of full-time work experience with the foreign enterprise
- You must have a specialized knowledge position or a senior or managerial position
- You must be coming to Canada to perform comparable work for the Canadian affiliate, in an executive, senior managerial, or specialized knowledge role
Canada is the United State’s largest trading partner and is home to many subsidiaries, parent companies, branches, and affiliates of companies that operate in the US. Often these businesses can bring foreign workers to Canada as an intra-company transferee without first having to offer the job to Canadian citizens and permanent residents.
H-1B visa holder who want to immigrate to Canada have the best chance to be selected to move to Canada with the help of a Canadian immigration lawyer to avoid mistakes and guide you through the application process.
