As of March 1, 2016, Canadian companies seeking to move employees to the U.S. on E-1 and E-2 (Treaty Trade and Investor) visas will benefit from streamlined registration at the U.S. Consulate General in Toronto and additional processing locations across Canada.
The improved process will benefit employees of companies with valid registrations and their dependents, as well as companies already registered and applying for renewals.
The U.S. Embassy in Ottawa and the U.S. Consulates General in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, and Montreal now offer E-1 and E-2 visa appointments for employees of companies with valid registrations and their dependents.
Employees of enterprises not previously registered at the Consulate General in Toronto, however, or companies with expired registrations, must still schedule their E-visa interviews in Toronto.
If you are interested in applying for an E-1 or E-2 visa, please contact our office to schedule a consultation with one of our attorneys today!
