Applicants from Canada and Mexico who have a valid job offer in the United States are allowed entry on a TN visa. The eligibility criteria includes:
- Proof of Canadian/Mexican citizenship.
- The applicant’s job must fall under the list of NAFTA professions.
- A full-time and valid employment offer from an employer in the United States.
- Bachelor’s degree or equivalent, at minimum.
- The applicant’s profession lies within the appropriate regulations.
Canadian citizens are eligible to apply for the TN visa at a consulate or embassy in Canada, CBP-designated U.S. ports of entry, or at a designated pre-clearance / pre-flight inspection stations. Mexican citizens are eligible to apply for the TN visa at a consulate or embassy in Mexico.
The initial stay for TN visa holders is up to 3 years. However, if applicants wish to extend their stay, they must obtain permission or apply for an extension. Applicants may travel internationally on a TN visa and are allowed to leave the United States before their status expires.
