How to Get A TN Visa For Canadians

A TN visa allows Canadian Citizens to work in the United States if they have a valid job offer from an American employer.

How to get a TN Visa for Canadians

1. You will need:

A US job offer that is on the NAFTA List and is consistent with your education and experience.

A US job offer letter that is properly formatted for a TN Visa from your employer.

A copy of your well-organized and complete resume and references that indicate you are suitable for the job.

A valid Canadian passport that will not expire before your TN visa does (in the next three years).

Proof your education makes you suitable for the job via copies of your educational transcripts, diplomas or degrees.

2. Make an application for a TN Visa. Your application should be filled out accurately and completely. If you make a mistake or miss anything, your TN visa application could be denied. Follow the instructions very carefully!

3. Have your application for a TN Visa reviewed by a licensed immigration lawyer to make sure that you are eligible and haven’t left anything out.

4. Submit your TN Visa application. You can submit your application and supporting documentation at the US-Canada border or US port of entry. However, do not be fooled into thinking that this means TN Visas are easy to get – it is still up to the immigration official at the border to review your application and supporting documentation and ensure you are qualified for a TN Visa.
