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

A Reputation of Excellence Our Success

    "Thank you all!"

    The attorneys and paralegals and their assistants at Akula Law in Dallas handled my immigration case for the US efficiently, with care and with attentive responses to questions. Katrina was our lawyer for the remaining few months of our case, originally started by Daniele. Also with Erika and Christie helping us, and despite COVID-19 I finally arrived in the US in June and we couldn’t be happier. Thank you all!

    "The entire process through Akula law firm was easy and stress-free"
    I recently had the pleasure to work with Akula & Associates on an Eb-5 application and have to approve them as the go-to law firm for EB5 . I worked with Kavitha Akula, and was impressed by her immense expertise and knowledge on the EB 5 process. She and her team were available at every step to navigate through the EB-5 process, especially to get the appropriate documents from India. I was able to apply for the EB-5 Visa in a timely manner, and the entire process through Akula law firm was easy and stress-free. Kudos to Akula & Associates.

    "I truly love their staff!"
    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 !!
