Although the TN visa classification originated out of the North American Free Trade Agreement with the promise of facilitating trade in services under transparent criteria, this is hardly the case in today's U.S. immigration environment.
U.S. immigration's increasingly enforcement minded attitude, which frequently results in arbitrary denials or allegations of immigration violations that carry severe penalties, underscores the importance of a diligently and well prepared TN visa application.
The U.S. immigration landscape changes incessantly. Information on the law, rules, and procedures are not always easily accessible. The purpose of this Bulletin is to provide Canadian and Mexican citizens, as well as their prospective U.S. employers, with up-to-date information on the TN visa classification.
