US H1B is one of the most coveted visas by skilled migrants looking to migrate to a new country for better opportunities and quality of life. US seems to be the first choice in the mind of the immigrants, the USCIS will use the commonly known lottery process to randomly select applications to meet the requisite of 65,000 visas.

The process of selection is based on luck and what if your application is not chosen? Apex Visas India’s leading Immigration Consultancy suggests applicants to also aim for Canadian PR for some very simple reasons,

  1. U.S. and Canada share a business-friendly environment and a culture of openness allowing people with Canadian citizenship to work in US.
  2. People with US work or study experience do score a high point in the Canadian Express Entry System
  3. Candidates can look at PNPs to secure a permanent residence in Canada.

A Canadian permanent residence status allows a candidate to become eligible for Canadian citizenship which gives people an option to work in the U.S. — through programs such as the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

Apex Visas recommends applicants to pursue Canadian Permanent residence as a back-up option as the chances of success relatively higher as under the Express Entry System permanent residents arrive in Canada based on a point score which chooses the best profile first rather than a random selection – the points are awarded for language ability, high levels of education, and skilled work experience, among other factors. The process though simpler needs guidance from trained professionals who have experience in understanding the rules of immigration process and can guide perspective applicants correctly.
