TN status is available to citizens of Canada and Mexico who will work in the U.S. in a designated professional capacity for a temporary period. In order to qualify for this status, individuals must be coming to the U.S. in order to work in an occupation that appears on a list of professions designated under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). With minor exceptions, these positions require the TN employee to hold at least a Bachelor's degree.
Unlike H-1 or L-1 status, there is no limit on the amount of time an individual may hold TN status. However, in order to qualify for extensions, applicants must continue to show that they intend to leave the U.S. at the expiration of their temporary stay.
Since Canadians are visa exempt, applications for TN status are made at the border. Mexicans, who are required to hold a visa in order to enter the U.S., must first apply for a visa at a U.S. consulate in Mexico before they can apply for admission at a U.S. port of entry.
TN status is a convenient alternative to other employment-based visa categories, which are often more expensive and involve more rigorous requirements and a more complicated application process.
