Immigration Issues/L1 Visa
What about the TN Visa? could I apply for one while in the States or would I need to leave the country?
I am working under a L1 Visa in the US but would like to know if another employer could hire me in the States and how would the pick up process take place.
They could, except not as an H-1 until 10/07 and they could not apply until 4/07. You would have to qualify for other visas like J-1 or E-1 or E-2 to be able to do it now.
If you are Canadian, you would process by going to the us/canada border and reentering with a support letter and your qualifications. Only limited occupations fall into TN. If you are Mexican, you would have to get a petition approved before leaving the country to process the visa.
