TN: Canadian and Mexican Citizens
The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA),
developed a temporary employment classification to facilitate entry
of Canadian and Mexican citizens to the U.S. to engage in
professional business activities. The TN classification is granted
in increments of up to three years and is not subject to a maximum
period of stay and thus may seek multiple readmissions or
extensions, provided their intended professional activity continues
and they remain otherwise eligible. The employment must constitute
"pre-arranged" professional activity for a U.S. entity within one of
the professions listed in
9.B.9 Appendix 1603.D.1 of Annex 1603 of the NAFTA. The TN category does
not hold dual intent. The TN is to be used for temporary employment.
Therefore, it would not be appropriate for tenure-track positions.
Please contact the International Center for information on the TN
application process. The TN application process varies slightly for
Canada and Mexico.
