The answer is yes, you can change your TN visa employer, and it can be done a couple of ways. One is by mail with US Citizenship and Immigration Services. And the other is at a port of entry or at the border of the preflight inspection point. Most people, however that are asking the want to know the following:
Can I change my TN visa employer while remaining in the United States without having to leave?
The answer is yes and that is done through US Citizenship and Immigration Services, and that is done by your potential new employer. They would file a petition with USCIS requesting TN visa status on your behalf. Upon approval of that petition, you would then be able to change employers. You can also add employers, which is something that a lot of individuals don’t know. You can hold more than two TN visas at a time. So if you want to add another TN visa employer, you can do that by filing with USCIS as well, or by going to the border and filing a new application.
One of the main things to keep in mind is that even though you are currently on a TN visa, it does not guarantee that you’re going to be approved for a change of employer or for a new TN visa. You need to make sure that the application is prepared properly, that it has a proper supporting documentation, and that you make your case all over again. They expect you to argue all the necessary qualifying factors for you to be approved for that TN visa again. There was no such thing as a guaranteed application, no matter how many times you’ve been on a TN visa in the past.
So you can change your TN visa employer by filing the proper paperwork and forms by mail with US Citizenship and Immigration Services. And there are two different ways you can do it. You can do standard processing, you can get a result, and typically what we’re seeing now is one to two months, or you can do premium processing where you can get a result guaranteed in 15 days from USCIS.
