TN Visas for NAFTA Workers

Immigration Attorneys Located in Dallas, TX

Under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), a special economic and trade relationship was created between the United States, Mexico, and Canada. This agreement also created a unique nonimmigrant classification (TN) that allows citizens of Mexico and Canada to temporarily enter the U.S. for work in designated occupations and activities approved by NAFTA.

The work must be professional in nature and meet the requirements for those occupations. TN visa holders do not benefit from dual intent, so it is important to consult an attorney if you are interested in applying for a Green Card while on this visa.

Examples of TN visa holders include:

  • Accountants
  • Architects
  • Economists
  • Engineers
  • Doctors
  • Professors/educators
  • Management consultants
  • Urban planners, geographers

TN visa holders can stay in the U.S. for up to three years and can extend their visas indefinitely in three-year increments as long as they continue to maintain their eligibility.

Qualifying for a TN Visa

To qualify for a TN NAFTA visa:

  • You must be a citizen of Canada or Mexico (permanent residents not eligible)
  • Your profession must be on the NAFTA list - see the full list here
  • You must work for an employer and provide proof of employment
  • You must meet the education and other job requirements of the occupation

    "I truly say sincere THANKS for their great service."
    My journey started with Akula & Associates exactly 10 months ago. Came to know about them through a friend, casually called, impressed with their profile and signed up contract for services. Last 10 months we filed several cases and each case they treat like a completely new customer and examine each document thoroughly, advise and make us on top of the things. I truly say sincere THANKS for their great service. I truly love their staff. My paralegal Yezenia is awesome, attorney Toki is wonderful. Yet to work more with GC team, Shirin and Christie, great work experience so far. Last but not least Attorney Kavitha is Great!!! I hope I get the same level of service for me and employees for coming years!!! Good luck to Akula & Associates !!

    "I am consistently impressed by Ms. Akula’s knowledge"
    I recommend Akula & Associates, P.C. to information technology companies needing diligent immigration services. Whether it be an Department of Labor investigation, ICE investigation or a site visit from USCIS they have always come through with excellent representation for our company. Unlike other immigration law firm merely doing visa processing, Akula & Associates offer many other services to IT companies such as debt collection, litigation, patents and trademark fillings. I am consistently impressed by Ms. Akula’s knowledge of immigration law and her prompt follow through.

    "They handle the legal process in a professional way."
    Thank you for all your help and patience with my H1B. You made a difficult time a little easier and less stressful, which I greatly appreciate. Ambreen was very helpful in our immigration process and her efforts and work helped us to achieve our most important goal, which is a future for ourselves and our child in the United States. It was a great experience to work with such a professional. We always felt that she was reachable either by e-mail or by phone. We were very impressed with her way of doing business and how she tracked and controlled every issue such that our immigration process went well. She was very responsive, constantly reviewing and checking for the documents needed to carry on the process. They handle the legal process in a professional way, and the treatment is friendly with the clients, which makes it easier and more enjoyable. They always follow up with all the steps throughout the process and kept me informed of the outcomes and further documents needed for the next steps, which made me stay one step ahead of the process to help ensure the desired outcome. Really glad to have her and Akula associates as my attorney in our successful visa applications. We look forward to working with her again for our future legal needs.
