TN Status

The TN visa category permits Canadian and Mexican citizens who possess specific required qualifications and credentials to work in the U.S. on a temporary basis in certain defined professional occupations. Canadian and Mexican citizens can be admitted to the United States in TN status in increments of up to 3 years. Extensions of stay are also granted in up to 3-year increments. Status can be renewed indefinitely, provided that the stay remains temporary in nature.
