I was so tired. I had made a ridiculous number of trips to the washroom. And I was late. Back in my hotel room, I flung off my gloves and coat on a chair and bolted for the bathroom, locking the door behind me. I laid out my purchase on the vanity and tried to read the instructions.

Don’t assume you'll be admitted to U.S. as a Business Visitor business_travel_U.S._sm

There are a few nearly universal requirements for someone to be admitted to the U.S. as a visitor. He must have a foreign residence to which he plans to return. He also cannot be paid for his U.S. activities from a U.S. source; this would compel foreign employees of a U.S. company to obtain work permits for simple meetings in the U.S. As described below, however, simply being paid from Canada will not guarantee B-1 status if the traveler wishes to enter for activities that disqualify him. ...
