All About the TN Visa - Trade Worker Under NAFTA
A trade worker may be eligible to obtain a TN Visa under NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement), the agreement made between the United States, Canada and Mexico. This treaty created a special relationship between these three countries allowing for certain trade deals to occur. A TN visa is an employment based visa that permits citizens of Mexico or Canada when applying as a NAFTA professional, to be able to legally work in the U.S.
To qualify, the person must have one of the professions listed in the NAFTA agreement and carry the required credentials for that position. Limitations on this type of visa exist for immigrants who are already permanent residents here or for those who are self employed professionals. In addition, you must have a prearranged full or part time job from a U.S. employer. If you require this type of a work visa, contact a Dallas immigration attorney from the Mathur Law Offices for assistance in preparing the correct documentation and application needed in order to pursue this type of visa.
