TN Visa: Apiculturist
Background of TN Visa Category
In 1990, the addition of Apiculturist into the FTA was proposed "since it belong[ed] to the class of agricultural scientists, and other professions in that class were included in the original schedule." See 55 FR 6694 (Feb. 26, 1990). The Apiculturist occupation was formally added to the FTA in 1991. 56 FR 480 (Jan. 7, 1991).
The Apiculturist occupation was then carried over and included in the NAFTA list of available occupations in 1994. See 58 FR 69205 (Dec. 30, 1993).
