3 Tips for TN Visa Applicants With Multiple Employers, Manhattan, New York

The North American Free Trade Agreement gives certain citizens of Canada and Mexico the right to apply for a TN nonimmigrant visa. To increase your chances for approval and streamline the process, U.S. immigration law allows petitioners to list multiple employers on a single application. The tips below will help TN visa applicants who have received offers from several employers increase their chances of success.

3 Tips for Including Multiple Employers on TN Visa Applications

1. Include All Eligible Employers

Applicants listing multiple employers will only have to pay a single filing fee. However, amending an application to add additional employers later may require paying additional fees and increase processing times. Before applying, collect letters of support from all of your potential employers and ensure that all are included on your application.

2. Use Designated Ports of Entry

While Canadian travelers may apply at any point of entry, these locations have advanced capabilities and additional staff to facilitate approval of applications listing multiple employers. Applicants in Mexico must apply for TN status at a U.S. consulate or embassy, although those who already have approval may list additional employers at the border.

3. Speak to an Attorney
