TN1 Visa - for Canadians to Work in the USA
Canadians who want to work in the USA can use the NAFTA "TN" (treaty national) visa program. The visa is available for most professional / skilled types of jobs and professions (see below).
A qualifying TN employment offer is required from a qualifying US employer
The TN visa is not designed for self employment, or to set up a personal business.
The TN Visa initially lasts one year, but is renewable indefinitely.
There is no limit or quota of TN visas that can be issued each year.
The TN category offers Canadian professionals a fast track into the USA. Once in the US other options such as the H1B visa can be considered for a longer term stay
TN Applicants may apply at border posts. US CBP should process your application within a few hours.
If you are already in the US you can apply for TN status by mail through an USCIS regional processing center.
The TN visa automatically expires upon application for permanent residence. If you have a TN and want a green card, change status to H1B or E treaty status before applying for the green card.
TN Visa Benefits
- Canadian nationals may obtain the NAFTA visa at the border. They do not require prior petition approval by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) or a Labor Certification from the Department of Labor
- Canadian professionals can maintain NAFTA visa status indefinitely by requesting extensions based upon their qualifying professional activity
- You are entitled to request TD dependent visa status for your spouse and children under the age of 21. Your dependents may attend school as long as they continue to qualify under the TD visa classification criteria
- You can freely travel in and out of the U.S. provided you have a valid TN status
TD (TN Dependent)
Dependents of TN employees (spouses or children) can be in the U.S. in TD (Trade Dependents) visa status. Generally, Canadian TDs do not need to obtain a TD visa, but non-Canadian TDs do.
