Getting a TN visa for the United States

If you have a job offer in the United States, you may have heard about the TN visa. This visa is a specific type of visa for the United States that is only available to Canadian citizens (not permanent residents) and citizens of Mexico. This visa can be a great opportunity for Canadians to work in the United States for a temporary period of time, and the visa can even be applied for at the border. However, the visa is not easy to obtain, and applicants will have to prove they meet the requirements.  TN visa for the United States 4

Eligibility for the TN Visa

Primarily, you must have a job offer in the United States that is in a professional field, as indicated on the NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement). Such occupations include doctors, medical professionals, scientists, engineers and more.
