Work online for foreign company?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have an interview tomorrow for a job at a company in Canada. If I got the job, I would need to stay in Canada for a couple of months to do on-site training but then I would be free to work from home. So the majority of my time would still be spent in the US but working for a Canadian employer via the internet.

I have my 10 year green card and I do not want to lose it. I want to make sure that taking this job would not be seen as intending to abandon. Obviously I don't have the job yet, but it would be good to know if it is even an option. Does anyone have some experience with this type of situation?

Do not seen a problem.

You will want to make sure you are not taxed or receiving tax benefits reserved for residents of Canada. This can hinder your status in the US

Good luck
