B1 Business Visitor Visa

B1 Business Visitor Visa

For Those Canadians Who Want To Enter USA For Business

Canadians who want to enter the United States for business are often times B-1 permit holders.

The B-1 visa is designed to be fast and efficient, allowing Canadians to easily enter the US for business trips.

That being said, the US is focused on a high level of security. For this reason, even B-1 visa permits can be hard to come by. It is essential for anybody seeking a B-1 business visitor visa to hire an immigration law firm that can help navigate the application process and avoid potential downfalls.
