Can employment in canada be considered outside the United States, for Eb1C (for qualification for 1 year proceeding to US exp)?To meet the minimum qualifications for an EB-1 visa, one must have been employed outside the United States in the 3 years preceding the petition for at least 1 year by a firm or corporation and one must be seeking to enter the United States to continue service to that firm or organization. Employment must be outside the United States in a managerial or executive capacity and with the same employer, an affiliate, or a subsidiary of the employer. With the above known rule, if someone worked in managerial capacity in Canada within 3 years preceding the petition by the same firm through which one is working in US currently in managerial capacity, can this person qualify for EB1C / Will his Canada experience be considered as offshore experience?
