Los Angeles TN Visa Information

North American Free Trade Agreement professional visas

The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) supports vital economic relationships between the United States, Mexico and Canada. The NAFTA TN visa provides Canadian and Mexican citizens with a more streamlined process for conducting business in the United States. You may qualify for a TN visa if:

  • You are a citizen of Canada or Mexico
  • Your credentials qualify you as a NAFTA profession under the regulations
  • You have been offered and accepted a ¬†full-time or part-time job with a U.S. employer
  • The job you plan to perform in the United States requires ¬†NAFTA professional credentials
  • You meet all qualifications of the profession

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) approval is not required for initial admission of Mexican and Canadian professionals who meet the NAFTA qualifications. Experienced Los Angeles immigration lawyers can assist you and your family with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and U.S. consulate procedures.

Los Angeles TN visa help for Mexican professionals

Mexican citizens apply directly to the U.S. consulate or embassy for a TN visa. Retain qualified Los Angeles immigration lawyers represent you during all stages of your consulate application, port of entry admission and CBP inspection.

Port of entry applications for Canadian professionals

Canadian citizens do not require a visa to enter the United States. Instead, you can present documentation directly to an officer at the port of entry, including:

  • Proof that you are a Canadian citizen
  • Letter from your employer
  • Your credentials evaluation, if applicable to your case

Employers and Canadian professionals should work closely with their lawyers to ensure a thorough application and smooth port of entry processing and CBP inspection.

Initial authorization and extension of stay

The U.S. government authorizes TN professionals to work and live in the country for up to three years. If you remain eligible, you can file an application to extend your status at the end of your initial authorization. Your lawyer can assist you in extending your status with as little disruption as possible to you, your family and your employer.
