TN Visa (CUSMA) - Immigration Consultation
The TN visa under the Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA) allows Canadian, American, and Mexican citizens to work in certain professional occupations in Canada, the United States, or Mexico, depending on their citizenship. The TN visa is intended to facilitate the temporary entry of professionals to work in these countries without going through the regular work permit application process. To be eligible for a TN visa, the applicant will need to meet many eligibility requirements, such as: ＞Be a citizen of Canada, the United States, or Mexico: The TN visa is only available to citizens of these three countries. ＞Have a job offer in a qualifying professional occupation: The TN visa is available for certain professional occupations, which are listed in the CUSMA agreement. The applicant must have a job offer in one of these occupations. ＞Have the qualifications required for the job: The applicant must have the qualifications required for the job, such as a degree or certification in the relevant field. ＞Intend to work temporarily: The TN visa is intended for temporary work in Canada, the United States, or Mexico. The applicant must intend to work in the country for a specific period of time and then return to their home country. ＞Meet any other requirements: There may be additional requirements depending on the specific country and occupation. Once the applicant has met all the required eligibility requirements at the time of their application, they can apply for a TN visa. The application process includes presenting the job offer and supporting documentation, as well as answering questions about the intended job and duration of stay. It's important to note that the TN visa is not a pathway to permanent residency in Canada, the United States, or Mexico. It is intended for temporary work only. This is a complex application, so get legal advise as needed.
