TN is a nonimmigrant classification which allows qualified Canadian and Mexican citizens to work in the United States in certain professions listed under Appendix 1603.D.1 of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Among the professions included are Registered Nurses, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Medical Technologists, Accountants, Engineers, Graphic Designers, Hotel Managers , Teachers, and Scientists (See NAFTA list).
In general, the following requirements should be met in order to be eligible for TN status:
The position in the United States requires a NAFTA professional;
The applicant will work in a prearranged full-time or part-time job for an employer (Self-employment is not permitted);
The applicant has the qualifications to practice the profession.
Mexican citizens are required to obtain a TN visa in order to enter the US as a TN nonimmigrant but Canadian citizens do not. Canadians establish eligibility at the time they seek admission by presenting the required documentation at the port of entry. TN status is initially granted for up to 3 years and may be extended. The TN nonimmigrant’s spouse and children under 21 may accompany the principal in the US on TD status.
If you are an employer who intends to hire a Canadian or Mexican professional or a Canadian or Mexican citizen with a prospective U.S. employer, feel free to contact the Law Office of Carlo Borja so we can assist in the TN petition/application process.
