Is it easy to get a TN Visa for a Registered Nurse in Houston?

Registered nurses who are Canadian citizens may be eligible to obtain a TN Visa, which is a special type of work visa for the United States. Canadian permanent residents are not eligible. 

In order to be eligible for a TN Visa, you must have a job offer from a United States employer in an occupation that is on the NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) job list, and Registered Nurse is on that list.

However, that doesn’t mean obtaining a TN Visa is easy.

Requirements for a TN Visa

The requirements for a TN Visa are very specific. Many TN visa applications from Canadian citizens are denied each year, and you will have to ensure you meet the requirements. If you cannot meet the requirements or your job is not on the NAFTA list, please contact us. You can reach one of our licensed immigration lawyers at the phone number above or the contact form on the right, and we may be able to help you.

You must also have an existing job offer from a United States employer that is temporary in nature. In addition, this job must be for a temporary basis and not be for longer than three years.

If you are applying for a TN visa, you will have to prove that you have the qualifications and educational requirements to be capable of the job you’ve been offered. The job offer must also be formatted in a specific way that is special for a TN Visa application, and you will need to demonstrate that you have strong ties to Canada when you apply for a TN Visa.
