TN Visa Applications

For Those Who Need a TN Visa

The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) contains provisions that enable Canadians to obtain US work visas very quickly and with minimal documentation.


Under NAFTA, a Canadian Citizen who has a temporary offer of employment in the United States may qualify for a TN visa.

In October 2008, the Bureau of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services increased the initial maximum period of admission for TN Visas from one year to three years.

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.

Certain Documents Are Required for A TN Visa:

Proof of Canadian Citizenship (Birth Certificate or Passport)

An applicant must provide evidence that the intended employment/business activity and the applicant qualify under Chapter 15, Schedule 2 of NAFTA. This means that the applicant is required to provide:

A temporary Offer of Employment that is from a prospective U.S. employer;

They must also provide copies of any relevant educational degrees, diplomas and certificates

Letters of reference from previous or current employers that confirm your experience in your occupation (if applicable)

Some Important Advantages of TN Visas

One of the main benefits of TN visas over other types is that applicants are able to obtain this type of visa at the US/Canadian border or airport. Applicants are required to appear at the border with the required documentation. At this point, an immigration official will review the documentation. If satisfied, the applicant will be issued a visa on the spot.
