What you need to obtain a TN Visa

A TN Visa is a fast way for Canadians to work in the United States. You must make sure that your TN Visa application and supporting documentation are in order and that you haven’t left anything out before applying, or your application could be denied.

You will need:

1. A temporary offer of employment from a US Employer
2. Proof that you are a Canadian Citizen (such as a passport or birth certificate)
3. Proof that your employment falls under the appropriate NOC Job Code, available here.
4. Copies of your employment history, degrees and certificates to prove you are qualified for the position.
5. If applicable, reference letters from previous employers showing why you are a good candidate for the job.

TN Visa Tips

• US Job offer should be consistent with your Education
• US job offer should appear on the NAFTA LIST
• US job offer should not exceed three years
• US job offer letter should be properly formatted with all relevant information
• When you apply, READ and UNDERSTAND all your documentation
• Your resume should be well organized and complete
• Employment references should be consistent and relevant
• Bring a valid Canadian Passport for at least three years
• Foreign degrees and diplomas should be evaluated as equivalent to Canadian or US Standards
• Get your TN Documentation reviewed by an Immigration Professional
