Reminders for Canadians Seeking TN Visas and L1 Visas for the United States


New Option for Canadians who need a TN Visa for the United States

Formerly, Canadians could apply for a TN Visa with the United States Customs and Border Protection and could only apply to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services with respect to a TN Visa if they were applying to extend the TN visa or try and change their status to a TN visa. 

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recently announced that those who want to petition for a TN visa on behalf of a Canadian citizen (Form I-129, Petition for Nonimmigrant Worker) can now do so with USCIS.

“Canadian citizens continue to have the option of applying to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) for TN classification in conjunction with an application for TN admission to the United States,” said the release.

A reminder from the USCIS about L1 Visa Applications for the United States

The same release also served as a reminder to United States employers that they can also file their individual petitions of L1 visas with the USCIS – the Form I-129S, Nonimmigrant Petition Based on Blanket L petition.

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services is accepting applications and supporting documents.

Do you need help with your L1 Visa application or your TN Visa application? We can help you prepare your application for the best chance of success when obtaining a visa to the United States.

Spectacular experience. Completely smooth process, they were able to answer any of my questions any time and I had peace of mind throughout the application time, which was invaluable. I have recommended them to other friends looking for assistance with their applications, and will continue to do so. Worth every penny.
