New York City’s Top Immigration Attorneys Discuss The TN Non-Immigrant Status and TN Visa For Canadian And Mexican Citizens Entering The United States, Manhattan, New York

Are you a Canadian or a Mexican professional who wants to work in the U.S.? Think you need a TN Visa? The immigration lawyers at New York City’s Berd & Klauss, PLLC are well versed in all things visa related and would love to help you out. 

TN Non-Immigration status and TN visas are available to Canadian and Mexican qualifying professionals under the NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement). If you are wondering whether you’re eligible for this status or visa and want to find out more, consult the lawyers at Berd & Klauss. In the meantime, this article will answer some of your questions.

  • What is the TN Visa? The TN visa is a special non-immigrant visa for citizens of Canada and Mexico allowing them to obtain legal work in the United States. This work consists of prearranged full-time or part-time job for an employer (self employment is not allowed).
  • Who qualifies? Importantly, permanent residents in Canada or Mexico are not allowed to apply for the visa (only citizens). Your profession must be listed on the NAFTA list, which includes jobs such as an accountant, architect, engineer, graphic designer, land surveyor, research assistant, social worker, dentist, biochemist, teacher, and many more! Most individuals are required to hold a baccalaureate degree as an entry-level requirement, and experience cannot be substituted for this.
  • Canadian vs. Mexican citizens: Canadian individuals do not need a visa as a NAFTA professional, and can apply for TN non-immigrant status at a U.S. port of entry. All Mexican citizens are required to have a TN visa to enter the U.S. on this status.
