The TN Status Visa
Employers may continue to sponsor Canadian and Mexican nationals in "TN" status under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). This visa is available to Mexican and Canadian nationals who have been offered a temporary position in one of the professions described in schedule 2 of NAFTA. The applicant must have the degree or credentials required for that profession. The TN visa is valid for one year and may be renewed indefinitely. A spouse of an employee in TN status is not eligible for work authorization.
