TN Visas Now Valid for Three Years
TN Visa period of admission extended
After much anticipation, the Bureau of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services or USCIS, has officially increased the initial maximum period of admission for TN Visas to three years from one year. Further, those that want to apply for extensions of their TN Visas can apply for a period of up to three years instead of the previous one year maximum.
Read the Press Release here.For Canadians, this is a huge advantage. In the past, people wishing to work for more than one year in the US, had to resort to H-1B Visas. However, the problem with H-1B visas is that US Immigration imposed a worldwide limit of H-1Bs allowing only 65,000 visas issued every fiscal year as well as the general six-year maximum duration.
Great news for TN Visa applicants
With this new three year TN Visa rule, one need not worry about any annual limitations and there is also no set limit on the number of TN extensions one can apply for provided you can convice an immigration officer your stay in the U.S. will be of a temporary nature.
This is great news for TN Visa applicants!
