Does my job qualify for a TN visa?

Does my job qualify for a TN visa? In some cases it is easy to determine if your job qualifies for a TN visa, i.e., you are an accountant being offered a position to work as an accountant In other cases, it can be difficult to match your job with a qualifying TN Visa profession. You can determine if your job qualifies for a TN Visa, if:

  • Your job is listed on the list of TN Visa professions;
  • You meet the minimum education required for the TN Visa profession; and
  • You will perform the duties generally associated with the TN Visa profession.

In a situation where the job offer contains a title, requirements, or duties that don’t clearly match with a listed TN Visa profession, it’s best to have an experienced immigration attorney assist you. Getting a job offer that doesn’t clearly match with the ones listed under the USMCA (NAFTA) TN Visa professions list doesn’t automatically mean that you don’t qualify for TN Visa status.
