[Advice needed] I have a job offer from US based company and they are willing to sponsor me on L1. However with new proclamation, it looks like the process will further be delayed by 3 months and I can get a valid work visa by June/July at best.

Are there any chances that Biden administration overturns this. TIA

Why don’t you get started with the Canadian firm and maybe after a year think of relocating to the US? This way the uncertainty in the US gets resolved and it has minimal impact for you. The question would be is the firm open to you relocating a year or two down the line.

Thanks for your response. Will go for this approach. Relocation at a later point shouldn't be an issue.

Also, you could get a Canadian PR which is infinitely better than being on L1/H1B in the US. I am in the US now and thinking of moving to Canada with the option of coming back after a year. Good luck mate!

Thanks!

I am based out of India (Non-Tech, manager) and my motivation of moving is good pay and better life. I am skeptical about the wait as US Visa scene is very uncertain and I do not want to lose out on the opportunity. On flip side, I prefer US over Canada as US has more job opportunities and better pay. Any suggestions on what should I do or what you'd do if you were at my place? Thanks in advance.

Do you have a job offer in Canada?

Thanks for your response.

(i.e. for the same role. It's a MNC with pan NA presence)
