TN NAFTA Visa

TN Professional Work Visa

Under NAFTA, a TN Visa allows professionals who are citizens of Canada or Mexico to get a United States temporary work visa to work for a U.S. employer in over 60 job categories.

If you are a Canadian citizen, you can apply for a non-immigrant TN visa at the U.S. border or port of entry by providing documentation to the U.S. Customs and Borders Protection agent. The required TN visa documentation required includes:

  • Proof of Canadian citizenship
  • A written U.S. job offer detailing the professional capacity in which the employee will work in the United States, the purpose of the employment, the length of stay, and the applicant's educational qualifications
  • Professional credentials (if applicable)
  • Any applicable fees

A TN visa is typically issued up to 3 years but can be renewed.

To talk to an experienced business immigration lawyer about your qualifications for a TN Visa, contact Ackah Law today at (403) 452-9515 Ext. 100 or 1-800-932-1190 or email us directly.
