HI I am mexican working in an international company in Nicaragua.
My boss has told me that they want to interview me for the same company in Canada, if everything goes well they will give me a job offer so that I can apply for Permanent Residency and quit the job in Nicaragua and get hire in Canada. (that would be a dream to me)
I was looking in the internet and since I am Mexican I could apply for Nafta temporary work permit once I get the job offer and start working in Canada while the PR is getting process. However I have some questions I have not been able to figure out, even though I have search search the net and the forum.
I have an engineering degree (which is in the professinal listing in the Nafta) but the company in Canada might offer me a position in accounting area since I have 6 yrs experience in accounting but I do not have a BA in accounting (which is also in the professinal listing in the Nafta). Is this a problem for applying in the category of Professional in the Nafta?
1- Should I apply as an intra-tranfer or as a professional in the Nafta?
2- As an intra-transfer do I have to be working in a company in my country and the company has to literally transfer me into the same company in Canada OR can I quit my job in my country in X company and get rehired in Canada in the same X company (that is how my company is proposing me to do it)?
3- As an intra-transfer applicant, are the requirements a bachelor degree or the years of experience in the area being hired?
4- As a Mexican what were the steps to applied for the nafta (through embassy or border?, how long does the process take? what are the requirements, whatever you can tell me)
5- As mentioned I am in Nicaragua, should I apply for the Nafta and PR in Mexico City when I am living in Nicaragua or should I apply through Guatemala which is the closest CHC office (there is non in Nicaragua)?
6- Which office would be easier and faster for me - Mexico because I am Mexican and may know more about Nafta or Guatemala which is the corresponding office near me. Or I don't have a chose and can only apply to Mex or Guatemala without choosing?
Well, thanks so much for your help
and responses, I am excited
to hear from you all.
Thks and sorry for so many questions, if I did not ask something please just inform me.
