Does Microsoft allow transfers from Canada to USA

Jul 19, 2019 9 Comments

I’m applying for Microsoft, Canada as I got my Canadian PR approved. Does Microsoft allow employees to transfer to USA?
Planning to stay in Canada for 3 years and come back to USA on a valid H1B (got approved this year). Please let me know any thoughts on this plan and MS policy.
Thank you!

    If you have been workig for ms in canada >= a year, there is a visa that they can apply for you to go to the us - i believe it's called l1 visa. There, they can also apply for you for h1b.

    The reason I was wondering because if I work in Canada with a PR (no visa issues) and I request them that I want to transfer to USA where they need to start my H1B transfer and GC process, would this be a valid scenario
