The primary purpose of the TN nonimmigrant visa classification is to allow Canadian and Mexican professionals to temporarily work in the United States. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) created the TN nonimmigrant classification in 1993. In order to qualify, the Canadian or Mexican professional seeking this status must meet the following criteria:
  • The profession is on the NAFTA list;
  • The professional possesses the specific requirements for that profession;
  • The prospective position requires someone in that professional capacity, and;
  • The professional is going to work for a U.S. employer.
NAFTA made obtaining temporary employment in the U.S. and the classification necessary to engage in such employment, easier than previously possible for certain Canadian and Mexican professionals.
