The TN Visa: An Overview

The TN nonimmigrant classification allows for qualified Canadian and Mexican citizens to seek temporary entry into the U.S. under the terms of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Specifically, it enables professionals in certain fields, like engineers, nurses, and computer systems analysts, to work in the U.S.

Meeting the Qualifications for TN Visas

Qualification for a TN visa involves meeting several requirements. The applicant must be a citizen of Canada or Mexico, the profession must be on the NAFTA list, the position in the U.S. requires a NAFTA professional, the applicant is to work in a prearranged full-time or part-time job, for a U.S. employer, and the applicant has the qualifications to practice in the profession in question.

TN Visa Application Process

The process of applying for a TN visa varies depending on whether the applicant is a Mexican or Canadian citizen. In general, it involves gathering necessary documents such as proof of Canadian or Mexican citizenship, a letter from the prospective employer detailing items such as the professional capacity in which the individual will work in the U.S., the purpose of employment, the length of stay, and educational qualifications, and proof that the professional job falls within the list of accepted occupations under NAFTA.
