Also, no. You can't come in with a tourist visa, apply for a job, and then try to get a work visa. It's been stated in the thread previously. Sad

This is exactly what our family friend who's up here is trying to do. Iraq war vet who isn't getting shit for work in Arizona. When Canadian customs found out he was unemployed they went through his cell phone and laptop to find proof he was looking for work, they found the proof they wanted, and gave him a two week visa that will turn into an arrest warrant if he isn't gone by then. The intention of his visit was to find a company that would be willing to sponsor him. Since he has no in demand skills, it hasn't been easy. I'm wondering if he is better of applying at American companies that operate up here, like Halliburton.
