In order to be able to qualify for a TN visa to work in the U.S., the applicants must be a citizen of either Canada or Mexico and must have a temporary job offer of employment in a designated professional occupation from a U.S. employer.
The professional occupation must be on the NAFTA Professional Job Series List which currently includes occupations such as accountants, engineers, lawyers, medical and allied health workers, scientists and teachers. Furthermore, the applicant must meet minimum educational requirements or alternative credentials specific to their profession. TN visa applicants like all other applicants in every other U.S. visa category may also be required to meet certain health and character requirements.
