F-3 Visa

By Tiara

A F-3 visa is for business or professional activity. You must have proof that you will be performing such work while in the U.S., as well as documentation to show your business is legitimate.

Business owners need to prove they are running their company legally, which includes proving they have the necessary licenses, registrations, and documents. Employees also need to verify that employment contracts comply with local laws and that there are no illegal discrimination practices going on at the workplace.

If all of this is done properly then I’m sure everything will go smoothly when you visit our country!?

What documents are required?

Being able to prove your residency in Canada is one of the most important things when applying for a visa here. This can be done through proof of residence or work, both of which have different requirements depending on what country you are arriving from and where you will be traveling to.

If you’re coming directly into Canada as an immigrant, then only having proof of residence will do. If you need help proving this, there are some resources available to aid you. The Immigration Department in Canada offers free information via their website at https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugee-affairs/services/howto-visa/for-immigrants.html.

There is nothing wrong with buying or renting a house, condo, apartment or rooming house close to areas that offer transit services (transportation by bus, streetcar or train). Many people use these modes of transportation every day so it would make sense to be next door to such facilities.

Alternatively, if you know someone who is already living in Canada, they may be willing to vouch for you.

How long does the process take?

The third visa type is for those with an employment-based opportunity in the US. This includes having a job waiting for you here or to which you have been assigned as a dependent.

Most employers require two things from their nonimmigrant employee (or dependant) visas: 1) proof of adequate financial resources to remain in the country while your here, and 2) confirmation that you will leave the country at the end of your stay.

The second part is what makes it difficult to come down on the side of “can” prove entry into the United States. Employers typically don’t keep records proving that they paid enough money to employees or that they guaranteed them a position once they return home.

This means that even if you are able to show proof of sufficient funds, most immigration lawyers won’t be able to help you enter America unless you can also provide proof that your employer will let you go when you return.

Is there a fee?

There is one very important thing to know about working in Canada as an experienced resident or expatriate worker! Yes, even though you have your working visa, there is usually a nominal process that employers go through before offering employment to you.

This process is called employer verification and it’s done for two main reasons. The first is to make sure that no criminal records exist against you, and second to verify your residency status.

In both cases, this can be quite expensive so most people are not too worried about having to pay for it. However, if you do need money for other things (like living expenses or tuition), it would be best to find out how much it will cost ahead of time.

There are some extra fees that many employers also add onto the costs of processing their employee documents. These include:

Medical forms – these vary depending on whether you work full-time or part-time

– these vary depending on whether you work full-time or part-time Medical exams and tests - such as vaccinations and drug screening

– such as vaccinations and drug screening Security screenings and background checks

Some employers may require police clearances or proof of residence

These additional fees can easily add up and take hours to complete which is why it is best to prepare early.

Are there any tips for preparing my application?

The next step in applying for a visa is to prepare your application! This includes things like proofreading your resume, editing your cover letter, finalizing your life goals, and confirming that you have enough money to stay in America while you are here.

It’s also important to make sure that everything is authentic and not fake. For example, it is very common to see applicants use pictures of family as their personal documents, but if someone else took those pictures they may be entitled to question its authenticity. Make sure to check all your sources!

And lastly, be careful about sharing too much information with people online. Applicants often put themselves through rigorous checks before issuing visas so don’t make things harder for yourself by oversharing.

What are the different types of visas?

Visas help people enter or exit a country for business, tourism, or to stay longer than planned. Almost every national requires a visa before they will allow you to visit them!

Most countries have several categories of visa depending on what type of trip you’re making. Business trips require a more formal visa process because there is greater potential for money being transferred or transactions done. Tourism level visas usually do not require much documentation other than your passport and plane tickets.

The three most common non-working level (what we refer to as tourist) visas are:

Visitor Visit Friend/Family A short term vacation typically one week long. You must meet in person at a specified location outside of the country twice during this time period.

Business travelers use these kinds of visas the most since it does not need to be verified on site like work visas do. Many times, employers ask employees if they know anyone in the target city that could show them around while they're visiting.
