TN Visas

Trade NAFTA Visa Classification

ois---h1b-acquiring-initial-status.jpgThe Trade NAFTA (TN) non-immigrant classification was established as a part of the North American Free Trade Agreement, which created special economic and trade relationships for the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Under the TN classification, qualified citizens of Canada and Mexico are allowed to engage in temporary employment in the United States at the professional level. Only the occupations that are listed in Appendix 16.03.1 of the NAFTA treaty can be utilized for TN employment.

Contact the Office of International Services for more specific information regarding these occupations.
