B-1 Visa Eligibility as a Canadian PR

Recommended Posts

Hello Experts,

Is a Canadian PR eligible for B-1 visa? I'm little unclear with the information on this page.

https://help.cbp.gov/app/answers/detail/a_id/1192/~/canadian--citizens%2Fresidents%2Flanded-immigrants-entering-the-u.s.

Past history: F-1, H-1B with an approved I-140 from US. 

Also, never worked in Canada earlier since I got my PR recently. The company I was working in US wanted me to meet the Business people once in a month and as part of it, I have to travel to US. Just trying to figure out what my options would be.

Your valuable suggestions would be helpful.

Thanks!

If you are not a Canadian citizen you need a visa (or, if you are a citizen of a country under the visa waiver program, mostly European and Australia, you can use the visa waiver program.)

Thanks @JoeF. My question was more specific about the B-1 visa.

  1. Am I eligible for B-1 provided I have an approved I-140?
  2. If I am eligible, are the hours/days I am here in US on B-1 not billable?

You asked "Is a Canadian PR eligible for B-1 visa? " That's what I answered.

A visitor visa does not allow immigration intent. You have shown immigration intent with the I-140. So, it is unlikely you would get a B1 visa. And a visitor can not get paid by a US company.
