Knowledgeable And Efficient Guidance For TN Visas
The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) created a unique nonimmigrant status for qualified citizens of Canada and Mexico called a TN visa or TN status. TN visas were retained during the adoption of the successor to NAFTA, the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), in 2020. A TN Visa gives skilled professionals expedited work authorization in the United States. Understanding who qualifies for a TN Visa and how to navigate the legal process can present many challenges for people who wish to work in the United States.

Understanding The Facts About TN Visas
To get a TN Visa, a citizen from Canada or Mexico must have a full-time or part-time job offer from a U.S. employer that falls within one of the 60 available professions. There are a wide range of job roles, from teacher to poultry scientist, but all positions require at least a bachelor’s degree or professional license. Additionally, all TN visa applicants must meet all admissibility requirements, such as no criminal convictions for crimes of moral turpitude.
Obtaining a TN visa allows the holder to work in the U.S. for up to three years and potentially extend the stay. TN visa holders may also be able to bring a spouse and children under the age of 21 to the U.S. Generally, a TN visa will be much faster and less expensive than other visas, but they are only for nonimmigrants who have a job offer available to them.
