If you are a Canadian Citizen, you can apply for a B1 Business Visa at the United States-Canada border or at the United States port of entry such as an airport. However, when doing so be advised that your application and supporting documents must be in perfect order or you could be denied and have to return to Canada.

If you are a non-Canadian citizen, the application process is as follows:

Application for a US Business Visa for non-Canadians

1. Ensure you have a digital photograph of the applicant for the visa. If you visit any location that provides passport photos, they will be able to provide you a photograph that is suitable for a US business visa – just tell them what it’s for.

2. Make an application for a US B1 Business Visitor Visa. You will need to obtain all of the supporting documentation needed to go with your application, including proof that you will return to your home country after your trip is complete (via ties to your family, property, employment or finances in your home country) and information that details your work itinerary for your stay in the United States.

3. Pay the fee for the B1 Business Visitor Visa application and make an appointment with your closest US embassy or consulate. You will need to undergo a visa interview.

4. Ensure that you bring the following to your interview:
– Your valid passport
– Your visa photos
– Your application
– Your visa fee receipts
– Your appointment letter
– Your supporting documentation as described in step 2.
