Have you always wanted to move to the U.S.? This year, make your dreams a reality!

Have you always wanted to move to the U.S.? This year, make your dreams a reality!

Have you always wanted to move to the United States? Now is the right time for you to move to the U.S.!

Thousands of people move to the United States every year to live, work, go to school or visit family. U.S. immigration laws are complex and are constantly changing. Before you make your travel plans from Canada to the United States, remember that you need a valid visa in order to lawfully work, study and live in the U.S. whether you're employed, retired or a student.

The United States' efforts to tighten immigration rules at all levels including green cards, the Diversity Immigrant Visa Lottery program, H-1B visas for technical workers and sponsorship of a spouse or relative has increased the requirements and often the time it takes to immigrate to the U.S., says immigration lawyer Evelyn Ackah.

"Every case is unique and requires complicated paperwork and preparation. If it were easy to move to the United States, I wouldn’t have a job. Immigration applications can be refused due to minor oversights and omissions that can delay or negatively impact your business or your family reunifications plans. By not using a lawyer you can be putting your business or your family at risk."

U.S. Immigration – Cross-Border Applications

U.S. Immigration Law

The type of visa you require to travel to the United States determines what type of visa you need.

The U.S. Department of State issues visas to foreign nationals traveling to the United States through its embassies or consulates. However, you do not need a visa for your business meeting or for vacation if you are a citizen of the 38 countries participating in the Visa Waiver Program.
