    Default American Based Employee Working Abroad

    I am Canadian. I will be hired as a consultant to work in Guatemala for an Institution based in United States. I will start my contract with a one week training in Washington, and I will then go to work in Guatemala. My cheque will be issued in the United States.

    - Do I need a work Visa to get paid as a consultant from the U.S. ?
    - Do I need a work Visa to get a training in the states, for an institution that hired me as a consultant to work with them in Guatemala?

    thanks to answer quickly,

    Charles

    You don't need a U.S. visa to work for a U.S. company outside of the U.S.

    As for what Guatemala requires, check with a Guatemalan embassy or consulate, or with your prospective employer.

    Thanks,

    therefore, when I'll cross the border to get to Washington, I should tell them that I will get a "training", "introducing session", or "pre-work meeting" with future employer, before going to work abroad? Which vocabulary is more appropriate?

    thanks Mr. Knowitall,
