Requirements for a TN visa for the United States
Did you know that there is a United States work visa available specifically to Canadian citizens who have a job offer in the United States? This visa is called the TN visa, and it is available for professionals who work in certain occupations. This visa is even quicker to obtain than most work visas, because you only need to apply at the border instead of by mail. However, quick does not necessarily mean easy. You still have to meet all of the requirements.
Applying for a TN visa in the United States
The job offer that you have received for the United States must be formatted as a petition for a TN visa on your behalf, as well as in an occupation that is on the designated NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) list for the TN visa, which includes professional occupations that require a high level of education and often a university degree or higher.
The employee must be able to prove that they are qualified for the job they have been offered through their credentials and resume, as well as references and other information.
The TN visa is a temporary visa, which means that applicants must be able to show they have strong ties to Canada and will return there when they are finished working in the United States. TN visas are generally good for about three years.
