What is TN Visa?

Foreign nationals generally must first obtain an appropriate visa to stay & work in the US. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) created special economic and trade relationships between the U.S., Canada & Mexico.

The non-immigrant NAFTA professional (TN) visa allows citizens of Canada & Mexico, as NAFTA professionals, to work in the US in pre-arranged business activities for U.S. or foreign employers.

Who is eligible ?

Requirements for Canadians :

Canadian citizens usually are not required to obtain a TN visa (i.e the visa stamp in their passport). Even without a TN visa, a Canadian citizen can apply for TN status (i.e. for permission to enter as a TN non-immigrant) at a U.S. Port of Entry .

A Canadian citizen would need a TN visa if he / she resides in a 3rd country with a non-canadian spouse and/or children. If such a Canadian citizen plans to enter the US as a NAFTA professional, he/she must 1st procure a TN Visa so that the dependent spouse/children may apply for the derivative TD visa.

Requirements for Mexicans :

Mexican citizens are required to obtain a TN visa in order to enter the US as a NAFTA professional.
