TN Visa: Psychologist
Background of TN Visa Category
TN Visa Applicant Requirements
However, after community input recommending that the requirement for psychologists be increased to the holding of a doctorate, or a state or provincial license, the FTA working group increased the requirement for Psychologists to possession of either a state or provincial license. 56 FR 480 (Jan. 7, 1991).
The rule implementing NAFTA retained the FTA’s requirements for a Psychologist, but added possession of a Licenciatura Degree (the first tier of higher education in Mexico) as an alternative credential for qualification as a Psychologist. 58 FR 69205 (Dec. 30, 1993).
As result, to qualify for TN visa status under the occupational category for Psychologists, an individual must possess one of the following:
- State/Provincial License.
- Licenciatura Degree.
