Visa for Small Canadian Business/Canadian Citizen

Recommended Posts

I am a small business owner based in Toronto. My firm is contracted to do work in the US through another international company based in Australia who has signed a contract with the US company. The Australian company has then subcontracted the work to me. I get pain in Canadian Dollars. The nature of the work is temporary) a few days. I am a Canadian Citizen. What type of visa do I need?

Thank you in advance for your responses.

You can not do work in the US with your foreign company.

You can do meetings with a B1 visa, but for work you would either have to become an employee of the US company on H1, or you would have to set up a subsidiary in the US and use an L1 visa (intracompany work) to wok for the US subsidiary.

For details you need to consult with a good US immigration lawyer.

You can look into TN status or TN visa and see if your work qualifies for a TN status. But I think the US company will need to sponser your TN Status/Visa.

TN requires that he is an employee of the US company.  Doesn't work with his foreign company.
