Every business is unique, as is every immigration scenario. Working primarily with companies based in New York and the San Francisco Bay Area, we understand the sense of urgency in high-growth industries as well as the critical and personal nature of the process to the employee. We balance those concerns by prioritizing efficiency and quality in everything we do.

The Future of Immigration in Canada

US Individual and Family Immigration
Yesterday, March 27, 2024, USCIS started issuing selection notices for this year’s H-1B lottery. We will notify clients once we have received a selection notice, but not of non-selection until USCIS has officially announced the conclusion of this draw. Though there has been no official notification from USCIS, we have noticed a small number of selections starting to be updated. We expect more thorough results and the vast majority of selections to come towards the end of this week and over the weekend, along with a formal announcement from USCIS, with the draw concluding Monday, April 1, 2024.
On March 21, 2024, USCIS issued an announcement that the agency has extended the deadline for H-1B registrations for fiscal year 2025 to noon Eastern on March 25, 2024 due to outages in the system. As we have previously noted, USCIS issued new enhanced accounts for this year’s registration process, and many companies and firms have experienced various glitches and outages with the system, prompting AILA to request additional time for all parties. We welcome this extension from USCIS and continue committed to registering our clients as soon as possible.

Effective February 29, 2024, Mexican citizens traveling to Canada are subject to new requirements: Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) Requirements: Mexican citizens must now meet new criteria to qualify for an eTA. Mexican citizens are eligible for an eTA if 1) they are using a valid Mexican passport to fly to Canada, 2) they are going to Canada for a short visit (typically 6 months or less), and 3) they either have held a Canadian visitor visa in the past 10 years or currently hold a valid United States nonimmigrant visa. Existing eTAs Cancelled: Any existing eTA will be automatically canceled for Mexican nationals unless they have a valid work or study permit. Application Process: Those with eTA applications in progress must reapply for a new eTA or a visitor visa.
About Brown Immigration
As we have previously reported, USCIS announced that the initial registration period for the FY 2025 H-1B cap will “open at noon Eastern on March 6, 2024, and run through noon Eastern on March 22, 2024.” Notably, the registration fee during the registration period starting in March 2024 will remain $10 but increase to $215 starting next year’s lottery in 2025 for FY 2026. Because of this dramatic increase in cost, we recommend our clients register as many employees as possible into this year’s lottery to take advantage of the $10 fee while applicable.
Border applications are very nervous occasions for me. I’ve had my share of difficult immigration inspectors. Brown Immigration Law prepared a very professional looking submission and coached me on what to say, and what not to say. They even selected a port that was friendly to my type of application. Despite how difficult the Management Consultant application process can be, and having been denied previously, they made it a smooth and easy experience and I thoroughly enjoyed my consulting project. I’ve recommended Brown Immigration Law to countless people since.

Brown Immigration Law represented a multinational tech company I worked for based in the Bay Area for 10 years when I left the company. I found my way back to tech 2 years later and immediately recommended them when my new employer had significant problems getting results from a large international immigration law firm. They immediately won employees over with their hands on approach and they fixed all of the problem cases expertly and efficiently (as fast as they could given how slow USCIS moves!)! They even recognized a fix for one of our executives the other firm had not contemplated. We’ve been thrilled with the work and outcome Brown Immigration Law has delivered the last three years!

Brown Immigration Law was resourceful, helpful, and very professional in our first dealings. I was hired into a senior leadership position and they made the transition on the immigration side seamless. After securing my non-immigrant status they went to work on my green card. I dragged along the process, but Brown Immigration Law kept me on schedule. I chose to leave the company and I found another senior position running a small startup. As part of the agreement, I wanted Brown Immigration Law to be able to help me with future immigration needs. They ultimately filed my green card application and while it was pending the company was bought and I found yet a third employer. It was stressful to break new ground in immigration law when needing your status to work and achieve company objectives. Despite my career changes they stuck with me, always knew the most important and relevant aspects of my case, and convinced the government I was an Alien of Extraordinary Ability. I don’t think this would have been possible without Brown Immigration Law’s help. The third employer liked what they did so much, they have been immigration counsel for all employees five years running.

I approached the Green Card process with much trepidation and fear, and it was also a new thing for my management team to deal with. Brown Immigration Law held our hands throughout the process and was always available for questions and advice pre-green card and after green card. The process went very smooth and I recommend to help with future immigration issues for our staff. They have since helped our organization tremendously.

I first worked with Brown Immigration Law starting in 2012 when Brown took over for our San Francisco based immigration law firm. They immediately set our mind at ease with hiring a Midwest law firm, with their attention to our employees and excellent work. After working with Brown for four years I asked my new employer to transfer their cases soon after I arrived. They immediately found some issues that were concerns for us and helped us resolve some problems as soon as they took over. We value the work Brown Immigration Law does to keep our employees in status and focused on the task at hand, not their immigration process!
