Alberta Oil Workers Moving to Texas and New Mexico on US Visas

Texas Oil Workers

Attention Oil Patch Workers, Contractors, and Business Owners!


Did you know that many Canadians are moving to the US to work in the oil patch in Texas and New Mexico?

Alberta’s oil curtailments, trouble building new pipelines, and cooling investor sentiment have depressed the Canadian oil industry. Because of this, Texas is taking advantage of Alberta’s weakened oil sector, enticing Canadian energy workers to move to the south. Alberta still has the third-largest oil reserves in the world, but Canadian companies that used to turn to the U.S. market for growth are now using it as a matter of survival.

The US is a place of many opportunities and possibilities. Whether you are looking to expand your business to the US, launch a new business altogether, or have a job offer in the US, VisaPlace can help you with this process.

How to Move from Alberta, Canada to Texas, USA?

To move from Alberta to Texas, you need to be in compliance with US immigration, or else, you can find yourself in a sticky situation. It is crucial to have proper representation from a firm that deals with these types of applications on a regular basis. Whether that means helping you with your E-2 visa, L-1 visa, TN application, H-1B application or even EB-5 applications.

We understand the nuances these applications have for Canadians, and we would love to work with you to support your ambitions and get you a successful application. Increase your odds of success and feel confident with the process – speak to our experienced US attorneys to begin!

When you get the opportunity to go to the US for work from abroad, then I would say VisaPlace would be your best option to get all your documents in place. My 5 star feedback is based on the help I received from Danielle Grbic as she was really professional, I would straight away ask for Danielle to be in charge of your process. From the time that Danielle took over my case I felt confident that it will go well and at the end it went smoother than expected. On my own I would never have been able to get this internal work transfer done as a L1 visa and was best for the professionals to take charge. After arriving in the US, Danielle was still happy to assist with documents and advise. A huge thanks to Danielle and VisaPlace

I spoke with Lilly last week and she’s incredible. Very informative and you can tell she definably cares about her job. She wasn’t pushy at all and she’s there to help you figure out if this service is right for you. I’d recommend contacting VisaPlace if you’re thinkin of traveling internationally and you have questions about the different types of permits.

I had a great experience with Andrew Diamond from The Visa Place. Andrew was very knowledgable and helped us every step of the way. When we had a discrepancy with my spouse’s Visa Andrew helped us navigate the system in the USA. He even offered to speak directly to the customs and border control officer to help us iron out the situation. Overall the experience was very good and smooth. I highly recommend Andrew and his services at The Visa Place.

Extremely satisfied with the professionalism, expertise, efficiency, speed and thoroughness at which my file was managed. Fadi & Danielle are true class acts! Their response times were fantastic (especially during a high-stress period), their quality of work was phenomenal, and their willingness to go the extra mile (without hidden costs, no less!) to prepare me for my work permit interview was unmatched. I strongly recommend VisaPlace to anyone seeking legal counsel as it relates to cross-border services. Highest Regards, Krista
