TN visas can be renewed indefinitely but must be renewed every three years. To qualify for this type of visa, an applicant must possess special qualifications or credentials that are required for their profession, such as degrees or licenses that demonstrate proper training and capability in a specific profession. Additionally, their proposed employment must be in the pre-approved professional category listed in NAFTA.
TN visa holders can apply for permanent residence in the United States. This is done through a process known as Adjustment of Status (AOS). To be eligible to file an AOS application, you must meet certain criteria, such as having a qualifying family member who is a U.S. citizen or Permanent Resident, having an employer who is willing to sponsor you for a green card, and having an approved immigrant petition filed on your behalf. If you meet all of these requirements, then you may be eligible to apply for permanent residence through AOS. It’s important to note that if you are already in the United States under a legal status other than a TN visa, then you will need to switch to TN visa status to file for AOS. Additionally, you will need to be sure that you meet all the requirements for TN visas and maintain valid status during your Green Card application process. You should speak with an experienced immigration attorney who can help guide you through the entire process.
Prospective TN visa applicants should consult with an experienced immigration attorney to better understand the application process and requirements for this type of visa. An experienced immigration lawyer can also help employers who wish to apply for a TN visa on behalf of their foreign national employees.
