I am sure I am not the first one asking this question on this forum. I moved from Deloitte US to Deloitte Canada a few months ago due to visa issues. I want to move back to the US. I have a very strong and supportive network in the US. How easy is it to get L1A if I spend a year in Canada? How soon can I get a GC if I move back on L1A? Anything else to keep in mind?

GC on L1A is typically 1-2 years and it is very straightforward(because EB1 GC has same eminence requirements as L1A), but getting an L1A itself could be a challenge, and if you get denied at the embassy/consulate, reapplying and getting it overturned is hard.

My strategy is to go for L1A and if that doesn’t work, then try H1B. The only tricky part is that once Partners in Canada know about my intentions they may get salty and bother me for the remainder of my time in Canada

OP ! Are you a manager ? L1A visas stamping are tricky but you can try for H1b and then try to enter US after spending 1 year outside of US and apply for EB1C, not a straightforward route but then you might not face rejection during your h1b stamping if your h1b petition is approved

Good luck, Deloitted you find it interesting 😅

you have to complete at least an year as manager . if not L1A is almost impossible. you also need Deloitte support for the transfer.

While we wait for someone to respond, OP, isn’t this something you should have thought of before you left for canada?

All good OP. Wasn’t being snide! Just curious. I suggest spending a couple of years in canada and rising up the ranks so that your chances of fulfilling the eb1c qualifying criteria increase and then you can come back to the usa.

In the same boat. Completed 5 months 8 more to go and fingers crossed. Deloitte canada Toronto location.
