TN Visas.#Mexico, #Canada, #NAFTA.

TNs are still a visa category as of June 19, 2018! Listening or reading the news, it feels like going, going, going, going, going, not gone! (I can't think of the appropriate U.S. country song lyrics, open to suggestions). TN visas were born out of North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) entered into by and between Mexico, the United States, and Canada. TN visas allow Mexican and Canadian nationals to enter the United States as visitors for business, professionals, or L Petitions (Canadians). Unlike Mexicans, Canadians do not have to apply for a visa except for certain categories like the E.

Regulations define the types of positions that qualify as TN professional. TNs have no numerical limitations but I prefer H-1Bs because they allow a little bit more wiggle room as to what qualifies as a specialty occupations.

Unlike H1Bs and Ls, TNs are not allowed dual intent but the better practice is to request that the person apply for an immigrant visa at a U.S. Consulate or Embassy.
