If you are a business looking to hire an immigrant worker on a TN Visa, or if you have been hired to work in the U.S. or Canada, The Bobb Law Firm PLLC may be able to help you. We can identify the options you might have regarding USMCA (formerly NAFTA) and assist you with requirements your business may have to meet in order to hire a worker under that immigrant visa category.
Individuals who are American, Canadian and Mexican citizens who work in certain professions could work in the U.S., Canada or Mexico under a TN visa. In order to be eligible for this visa, the person must be a citizen of the above-mentioned countries and be hired to work in a profession on the USMCA (formerly NAFTA) list. The worker must also have all required qualifications and must work either part-time or full-time for an employer (self-employed people are not eligible for a TN).
Qualifying professions include (but aren’t limited to): accountants, architects, economists, engineers, foresters, graphic designers, hotel managers, industrial designers, interior designers, land surveyors, landscape architects, librarians, lawyers, management consultants, mathematicians, research assistant, social worker, silviculturist, technical writer, urban planner, vocational counselor, certain types of doctors and therapists, scientists, and teachers.
If you are an employer thinking of hiring a worker on a TN visa, or if you are planning to work in the U.S., Canada or Mexico on a TN visa, it is important to provide sufficient documentation to show that your job description meets USMCA requirements and that you meet the requirements for your specified profession. Additional documentation may be required. Have additional questions? The Bobb Law Firm PLLC may be able to assist you by reviewing your situation and determining the appropriate next steps.
