Good evening community members,
Me and my wife received our PR on May 2019 after soft landing in Toronto. I am currently working in Jersey City, NJ and have been remote for almost 5 years on a project. I have been on H1b for 8 years now. Even though I can continue to work remote, the location of work is restricted to the US territory. I have discussed this situation with my employer that I can’t wait much longer to enter and physically stay in Canada, otherwise I run the risk of losing eligibility to renew my PR.
A possible solution is to stay in Niagara and commute to Buffalo daily for work. Reading blogs and articles over the internet, I feel that it is doable but there are few gray areas which I wanted to clear out.
- How much of a hassle it is to enter USA everyday on H1b , dealing with border security?
- I have been seeing NEXUS card all over the place, are we as PRs eligible for it or is it only for Canadian/US citizens?
If anyone in this community is in a similar situation or is already commuting daily across the border on a US WORK VISA, kindly share your experience with me for guidance.
Per my understanding I have to be physically present in Canada for 2 years to be eligible to renew my PR. That way I should move before May 2022.
Any other suggestions options are also welcome. I will resort to job search in Canada if nothing else works out.
