P1 Visa Extension

By Tiara

A personal visa is an important document that allows you to live and work in Canada for a set amount of time. Personal visas are usually valid for one year, with no extensions allowed.

If your situation changes and you will be staying longer than one year, then you must stay in Canada past your normal departure date to register as a resident. This is called an extension.

You have to apply for this before your current visa expires so there is enough time to do things like find accommodation or prepare your home sale.

Most people don’t know about visa extensions but it can be very difficult to navigate without them. There are strict rules when applying for an extension which depend on what country you are coming from and how long you expect to remain in Canada.

This article will help you understand why extended visas are needed and some simple steps to make sure everything goes smoothly. We also look at different types of Canadian visas and how much proof you need to show while applying.

What does it mean?

A P-1 visa is for professionals or students seeking to work in the United States. You can only stay here as a professional worker or student for one year, so your next step should be made at the latest by June 30, 2020. If you already have a job or are enrolled in school this extension doesn’t apply to you, but there is still something you can do!

You can remain in the country as an academic or research scholar. An academic researcher or instructor can easily come back after the first year of their professional working experience in America. This is not limited to just colleges and universities, either – corporations often offer paid sabbaticals that can be used for extended studying anywhere and any field is possible.

There is no limit to how long you can use your scholarship position for, so even if you don’t plan to return to work immediately, you can always extend it later.

I missed the deadline for my P1 visa application.

My company sent out an email to all employees informing them of our international expansion and that we would be seeking employment visas for qualified individuals. The timing was very important as this process can take months, even years!

We have now extended the closing date for applications by one month to give people more time to gather their documents, proof signatures, and so on. This is because it takes us around two weeks to review each document and verify authenticity before submitting the form.

Once again, if you need to make arrangements please do not hesitate to reach out to me or one of the members of the Immigration team at your local ASIS office.

If you are unable to work for more than one year because your F-2 or G work status expires, you can apply for an additional one year authorization. This is called a P-1 visa authorization.

It is important to note that this only applies if your employment ends before December 24th, 2018. Otherwise, you will need to reapply for permission to stay in the US!

This article will go into detail about how to apply for a P-1 visa extension. Make sure to read our tips at the end of this page to know what to do next. We also include some helpful links here so you can check out more information.

What is a P-visa?

A P-visa is an entry level visa given to individuals with extraordinary ability to lead academically or professionally. These people have shown excellence in their field and have potential to continue doing so in the future.

They must have made significant contributions to their area and show proof of success. They must also agree to live and work in the United States while on the visa.

The length of time a person has been authorized to enter and work in America as a P-visa holder depends on two things; they must want to keep their status and prove it.

Proof includes documents such as passports, visas, and green cards showing the individual’s good standing in the US along with letters proving their professional career.

You should try to get the extension as soon as possible

It is very important to apply for a new visa as quickly as you can, because once your current visa expires, you will have to find another way of staying in the country.

If this happens at the end of your stay or even while you are traveling, it is quite difficult to travel without a valid visa.

You may also run into big problems if you do not have enough money to return home after your trip.

There is an exact time limit that each nation gives their citizens to remain in the country before they must leave, so it is best to be clear about how long your vacation will last.

You must pay for the extension

It is very important to understand that even if your visa has expired, you can still travel if you have enough money to cover your trip.

You do not need a new visa to leave or reenter Canada, but you will need to prove you have sufficient funds to return.

It is best to be prepared by bringing along proof of adequate financial resources before leaving on your current visit. This way, you don’t waste time looking for it while in Canada.

Remember, there is no grace period after your departure so make sure you are fully funded!

You may be fined or arrested

Recent changes to US immigration law have made it much more difficult for non-citizens to stay in America. If you are not a citizen of one of the 25 so called “visa exempt countries”, then overstaying your visa can now result in fines and/or imprisonment.

Many immigrants live their lives working hard to give back to this country they call home. They create long term relationships with friends, family, and colleagues here who depend upon them.

Overstaying your visa can also hurt those people directly.

If you remain undocumented for longer than six months, you could face deportation which would separate you from all that. This is particularly heartbreaking as most immigrant families rely on at least one member being present for work, school, and daily life.

Some employers even offer discounts or pay raises because they know someone will be there during times off or holidays.

Check your visa application for errors

Sometimes, even after you have finished all of your applications, there may be more paperwork that needs to be completed or additional documents that need to be gathered.

This is totally normal! Yours could be different from someone else’s though, so it is important to check yours against what others are doing.

If you notice something wrong, make sure to contact USCIS at the earliest possible chance so any corrections can be made before your visit.

Remember, if there is anything you do not understand, ask us! We are here to help you through this process.

Appeal your visa denial

If you are experiencing significant delays in having your visas renewed or if you have been denied, there is an appeal process that you can go through. This applies to both F-1 students and employment based immigrant workers.

You will need to gather all of your documents and proof that you have enough money to continue living while waiting for your visa to be approved. Then, you must find someone who knows how to handle such appeals so it is important to research this before beginning the process.

There are many ways to take legal action against your government, but most require you to hire a lawyer first. It is not expensive to do this, especially since you will likely only pay for one hour of his or her time.
