In the News: Canadian L1 visa holders on alert
recent article in the San Francisco Chronicle reported that Canadians who are applying for L1 visas  for the first time or renewing their existing visas are now encountering difficulties with US border agents. The article suggests this might have something to do with increased tensions between Canada and the US over trade policy. Some immigration lawyers have speculated it may simply be the new policy of the current administration, although they have not explicitly been informed of any policy changes. The Department of Homeland Security, is now directing Canadians to Citizenship and Immigration Services should they need to renew their L1 visas.
