B-1 visa for Canadian citizen


Recommended Posts

I am a Canadian citizen, currently visiting the US. I plan to make an investment in a business under the Treaty visa (E-2). Till I complete my research and negotiation, I want to cover my stay in the US with a B-1 visa (beyond the no-visa-required six month period). I have a few questions.

1. While in the US, do I apply for a change of status or a new B-1 visa?

2. Is it permissible to change from B-1 to E-2 under a change of status?

3. Can I apply for 1. and 2. above while in the US, or do I have to apply at a US consulate in Canada? It would be very inconvenient to leave at the middle of a negotiation.

I would appreciate some help. Thanks.
