In order for a those with Canadian citizenship to qualify under the NAFTA provisions, an applicant must show that s/he meets the following criteria:
After you have received a job offer from a US employer, the next step is determining which category of NAFTA you qualify under. The NAFTA occupation list is very specific as to the requirements necessary to qualify under each of the enumerated categories.
It is important that each applicant for a TN visa understands the category that s/he is applying under and is able to prove the elements necessary. The required documents vary based on the occupation, and we urge TN applicants to consult with an immigration lawyer prior to making an entry. While it is possible to overturn a negative result, it’s much easier (and less costly!) to make the right application the first time.
The US work visa can be issued for up to three years at a time and is renewable.
