How do I know if my job qualifies for a TN visa?

Sometimes it is very easy to determine if your job qualifies for TN visa status, other times it can be complicated. You can feel confident that your job qualifies you for TN visa status if:

  • Your job is listed on the TN professions list;
  • Your job title is one generally associated with the TN profession;
  • You meet the minimum education requirements for the profession; and
  • You will be performing the duties generally associated with the profession.

When the job offer includes a title, duties or requirements that are not easily matched with a listed TN profession, it is best to consult with an experienced immigration lawyer. Just because there is not an obvious fit between the job offered and the listed TN professions, does not necessarily mean that you do not qualify for TN visa status. We are experienced at helping Canadians and their employers identify the proper TN professions for their needs. Additionally, TN status is not always available. In these situations we are able to identify alternative visa options. If you have questions about whether the job offer you have received is a TN profession or if you need advice on which TN profession is appropriate in your situation, contact us today for a free assessment.
