What Is a TN Visa?

The TN visa is a non-immigrant visa that allows citizens of Canada and Mexico to work in the United States. It is a treaty NAFTA visa, and it is often referred to as a NAFTA visa.

Am I Eligible?

To qualify for a TN or NAFTA visa, you must:

  • You are a Canadian or Mexican citizen;

  • Your occupation meets the NAFTA regulations;

  • The U.S. job mandates a NAFTA professional;

  • You possess a prearranged role with a U.S. employer (not self-employment, as indicated in the necessary documents below); and

  • You possess the qualifications necessary to work in the specific profession.

How Do I Apply for a TN Visa?

Once you have determined that you meet the eligibility requirements, you may do the following.

If you're a Canadian citizen, you have two options:

  • Apply directly at a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) port of entry upon U.S. entry.

  • Have your employer submit the TN application, along with Form I-129, to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). After approval, you can seek entry at a U.S. port of entry.

If you're a Mexican citizen, you'll need to follow these steps:

  • Submit the required documents to a U.S. embassy or consulate, including Form DS-160.

  • Attend an interview as part of the process.

  • Receive a visa number.

  • Finally, seek entry at a U.S. port of entry.
