Can you go to Amazon Canada and come back to Amazon US on L-1B visa?

Aug 15, 2019 17 Comments

I am on F-1 OPT. i have two more tries for H-1B. If I do not get H-1B, can I go to Canada, work for a year and come back to US on L-1B visa? How difficult is it? I read some posts on blind that Amazon doesn’t help with that and that people are not getting L-1B. Is it true? Please advise.

      How long is TN Visa valid? Also, do I need to stay in Canada for the PR to be approved? Would it be okay if I DM you to learn more about it?

      You can get approved for the pr while in the US. The TN is valid 3 years but you can renew it undefinitely.

      Just switch company, you don’t want to risk getting PIPed while waiting oversea for your L-1B.

      But TN is non-immigrant visa.

      So? You can still work for a few years and just refresh it or apply for h1-b as you work. You can still apply for green card as well.
