Visas for Canadian and Mexican NAFTA Professional Workers
In most cases, a foreign national who desires to enter the United States must obtain a visa to do so. However, certain citizens of Canada and Mexico may be entitled to special privileges, based upon their employment, education, and other qualifying factors.
At Parikh Law Group, LLC, our skilled immigration attorneys have helped many Canadian and Mexican citizens come to the U.S. through a special program created by the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Contact us today for more information.
Special economic and trade relationships between the United States, Canada, and Mexico were created by NAFTA, now known as the U.S.-Mexico-Canada (USMCA) agreement. Under this agreement, eligible Canadians and Mexicans may obtain a TN (Trade NAFTA) nonimmigrant visa, allowing them to work in qualifying occupations in the U.S.
If you are a citizen of Canada or Mexico and have been offered a U.S. job in a NAFTA-approved profession, you may qualify for TN authorization, which will allow you to stay and work in the U.S. for up to three years, with indefinite renewals available. This opportunity is not open to permanent residents of Canada and Mexico, only citizens.
