B-1/B-2 Visa for Canadians

NAFTA expands the B-1 category for Canadian citizens and as a result, the application process is not only easier for Canadians as they do not need a visa prior to entry. Like the TN status, the application process is conducted at a port of entry. In addition, Canadians are also allowed a wider range of activities on a B-1 as compared to citizens of other countries. The initial maximum duration of status for a B-1 under NAFTA is one year.
