Temporary Nonimmigrant Work Visas
A non-immigrant visa grants you temporary stay in the United States. When your visa expires, you must leave the United States unless you have applied for Legal Permanent Residency.
This visa is for citizens of Canada and Mexico. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) between the United States, Canada and Mexico made this visa possible. Canadian and Mexican citizens, working as professionals in the business world, can now seek entry into the United States. Our business immigration law firm represents employers and workers in determining whether TN is the best option.
