Treaty Trader (E-1) visas for Canadian Chiropractors to work in the U.S.

Early in my career, I assisted a Canadian chiropractor to obtain an H-1B work permit.  It was a reasonable means for that doctor to gain the limited ability to work for a U.S. employer in the U.S. for three years 
In the past few years, I have worked with numerous Canadian chiropractors who have wanted to work in the U.S.  I have had the great pleasure of assisting these professionals in obtaining E-1 visas to work for Canadian practices in the U.S.  These chiropractors work for themselves, or work for practices owned by other doctors.  The requirements are that the practice must be Canadian-owned, with a substantial international trade in services with U.S. clients.  The E-1 visa is available to work for clients in the U.S. for 5 years – the longest work visa/permit time available. 

This is a great solution for chiropractors and many other professionals who want long-term work permits to work for clients of a Canadian business in the U.S.
