OK, it’s not just for Canadians, as it also applies to Mexican nationals. The TN visa was created as a result of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). However, more Canadians use this visa than Mexicans.
Did you know that Canada and the United States share a land border that exceeds 3000 miles? These two great nations have had a longstanding relationship that goes beyond its borders. Every year, thousands of Canadians move to the United States to work. While there are several types of U.S. work visas, one of the most common visas for Canadian is the “TN visa.”
Under this visa, a Canadian citizen may work in a professional occupation in the U.S. if:
1) He/she qualifies under the “Professionals Under the North American Free Trade Agreement” list; the alie
2) the Canadian possesses the specific criteria for that profession;
3) the employment position in the U.S. requires someone in that professional capacity and
4) the Canadian is going to work for a U.S. employer.
TN visas are renewable every three years (previously only one year), so long as the Canadian demonstrates an intention to return to his/her home country.
