TN Visa/Status – Mexican and Canadian Listed Professionals

Basic Requirements:

As listed in the Appendix 1603.D.1 of the North American Free Trade Agreement, Mexican and Canadian professionals may apply for the TN visa status to work in the United States. To qualify for this visa status, however, Mexican and Canadian professionals must have an offer for one of the professional activities listed in 1603.D.1—moreover, professionals must hold the requisite credentials for that position.

The employment opportunity available in the United States must meet one of the following two requirements: 1) the job must be through an employment relationship with a business entity in the United States; or 2) the job must be through a contractual relationship with a business in the U.S.

Applicants for the TN visa status must not posses any intent to immigrate to the United States. For Mexicans, visa approval must be obtained through the United States Consulate Office in Mexico. For Canadians, visa approval may be obtained from a port of entry anywhere between the United States and Canada.

Duration of Stay:

In most cases, TN visas are granted for a period of three years. So long as the TN visa holder remains actively engaged in business and continues to possess no intent to immigrate to the United States, the TN visa/status may be extended as long as the applicant wishes (typically by periods of three years).

Family Members:

Unmarried children under 21 and the spouse of a successful TN visa applicant will be eligible to enter and live in the United States with the TN derivative status so long as the primary TN visa remains active. While family members will not be allowed to be employed in the U.S., anyone with TN derivative status may attend schools.

Fees:

When filing a typical TN visa status application, the attorneys at the Law Office of William Jang, PLLC, will charge the following:

  • $2,000 in attorney’s fees
  • Fees charged by the Government (this varies)

In addition to our attorney’s fees, there will be filing fees associated with both the Consular Offices and the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
