TN Visa: Biologist
Background of TN Visa Category
In 1990, the the Canadian Phytopathological Society requested that the occupation of Plant Pathologist be added to the list of professions available for TN visa status. The NAFTA parties agreed to make this addition, and in 2000 the U.S. proposed to include the occupation of Plant Pathologists as part of the Biologist category "because the occupations [were] similar in educational requirements and duties." See 65 FR 79320, 79321-22 (Dec. 19, 2000). The addition was formally adopted in 2004. See 69 FR 60939 (Oct. 13, 2004).
