26 Feb New Hope for US H-1B Visa Through Canada Express Entry Program
The H-1B visa is a famous US visa for skilled foreign workers who are willing to work in the United States. To apply for an H-1B visa, as an overseas skilled worker an applicant must have an offer of employment to work in a speciality occupation which requires a minimum of a Bachelor’s Degree, and demands the worker duties in a specialised manner related to the degree.
Many of the skilled workers and educated foreign workers have applied for US H-1B visa applications, but many of the visa applications were rejected either by the highly selective lottery or by delays by the immigration department. Recuring and renewing US work visas are now increasingly difficult for many of the skilled workers looking to settle and work permanently in the US.
Meanwhile, Canada has been providing many immigration solutions for H-1B skilled workers in the United State. To intake the skilled workers Canada has been increasing the immigration opportunities reducing processing time. Canada is one of the diversified countries inviting overseas applicants with strong job markets, an excellent education system and universal health care.
Although the US is taking an increasingly high stance against migrant’s intake, the Canadian immigration government offers an optimistic alternative. Canada immigration department has announced a three-year plan for immigration on November 1st, 2018 to intake more than 1 million of the skilled overseas migrants in the year 2019 to 2021. This scheme is all for skilled workers and their families.
Canada’s immigration authority has to make remarkable progress in reducing processing time for the skilled worker. The immigration system of Canada popularly knows as Canada Express Entry System, used to process the application of vast majority skilled workers. This system processes about 80% of applications under the program in 4 months or less.
Going through the Express entry program the applicant will not only simply receive H-1B visas in the US. Instead, approved Express entry applicants receives Canada permanent resident status for themselves and the family member.
The Canada permanent residency visa is considered to be equivalent to the US Green Card, where the applicants get the right to live and work anywhere in Canada without any expiration date. With this facility, the applicant will fully benefit from other Canada citizenship.
