|TN Visa||Case Info.|
|Filing Process:||TN visa status application @ USCBP - Peace Bridge, POE|
|Processing time:||Approved same day filed|
|TN Category:||Computer System Analyst|
|Job title / duties:||Professional Services Consultant: responsible for assisting clients in implementing, integrating, and using the employer's software system to measure the performance of its client's data quality projects|
|Education:||Master of Business Administration degree with a concentration in Business Information Systems; Bachelor's degree in Econoimcs|
|Time under TN status:||4-years|
|Green card filed:||N/A|
|Strategy:||The main issues in this case were evidencing to USCBP that: (1) the position offered fell under the Computer Systems Analyst TN category based on its job duties, and despite the job title; and (2) the applicant qualified for a TN as a CSA based on her degree.|
CBP officers frequently deny TN visa applications where the position's job title is not exactly listed on the NAFTA Appendix and/or if the applicant does not possess a degree in the specific TN field.
To overcome this, we prepared a detailed cover letter with supporting evidence to show how the applicant's job and credentials were appropriate for TN visa status as a Computer Systems Analyst under the law, and based on U.S. Department of Labor publications and other sources.
