How can I obtain a TN visa as a Canadian?

You must provide the following at the port of entry:

  • A request for TN status
  • A copy of your college degree and employment records which establish qualification for the prospective job
  • A letter from your prospective U.S. based employer offering you a job in the U.S., which is included on the professional job series (NAFTA list) and
  • A fee of U.S. $50.00

Note: Canadian citizens are not required to obtain a visa, but instead receive TN status with the USCIS at the port of entry.
