TN Visa for Servicing Contracts

Although most TN visas are issued to Canadian employees working for U.S. companies, U.S. immigration law also allows Canadian companies to sponsor their employees to obtain TN visas in order to perform services under pre-arranged contracts with U.S. companies.

The most common scenarios where we see the need for TN visa status is for the employees of Canadians companies that supply IT or consulting services. Since these contractual relationships are often complex, it is best to work with a U.S. immigration lawyer experienced in preparing TN visa applications for Canadian companies and individuals with pre-existing contracts with U.S. companies.
