Q&A: How does a Canadian go about getting an American Work Permit or Citizenship?

Question by Megan: How does a Canadian go about getting an American Work Permit or Citizenship?
I have a Canadian boyfriend who might move to America with me (Texas to be exact). I have two questions;
1. How does one go about obtaining an american work permit or citizenship without marriage or joining the army?
2. Is it really difficult to do?

Best answer:

Answer by CPG
1) Find an employer willing to sponsor and petition you or work for a company in Canada, which has offices in the U.S. and hope for a company transfer. Citizenship comes much, much later, once you have obtained permanent residency. Neither the H1B or L1 visas are direct routes to a green card.

Boyfriend must have a Bachelor’s Degree to be eligible for an H1B.

2) H1B, yes. L1, no.
