TN NAFTA Professional (Trade NAFTA)

About the service

The TN visa, also known as the NAFTA Professional visa, is a nonimmigrant visa category available to citizens of Canada and Mexico who are seeking temporary employment in the United States in certain professional occupations. This visa category was established under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) to facilitate the movement of professionals between the U.S., Canada, and Mexico for specific types of employment.

Benefits of the status/service

  • Fast and Streamlined Process: The TN visa application process is generally faster and more streamlined than that of other work visa categories, allowing eligible professionals to start working in the United States relatively quickly.
  • Occupational Flexibility: TN visa holders have the flexibility to work in a wide range of professional occupations, including but not limited to fields such as engineering, accounting, computer science, healthcare, and education, among others.
  • Renewable Status: TN visas are typically issued for an initial period of up to three years and can be renewed indefinitely in three-year increments, as long as the individual continues to meet the eligibility criteria and maintains their ties to their home country.
