TN Visa Lawyers in Austin

Did you know that in order to work in Austin, you may require a TN Visa? The majority of foreign nationals require a United States work permit in order to work in the United States, and a TN Visa is a type of work permit for the United States. 

However, first you must make sure you are eligible for a TN visa in order to proceed. If you are a Canadian citizen who has a job offer from a United States employer in a certain type of job, you may already be halfway there. Keep in mind that only certain jobs can qualify for a TN visa, and these jobs are listed on the NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) list. These types of qualifying jobs include jobs with high levels of education, like scientists, lawyers and doctors. Your job offer from the United States employer will also need to be formatted in a very specific way to be eligible, and you’ll need a copy of this for your TN visa application package.

You must also be able to prove that you are qualified for the job you’ve been offered based on your educational history and work experience. Sometimes, employer references may be necessary.

TN Visas are not easy to get, and these are only some of the requirements. You will also need to demonstrate that you will leave the United States after your TN visa expires. To do so, you need to show United States immigration officials that you have enough waiting for you back in Canada and will definitely return, such as a house, family or job. You will also need documented proof of these things to be considered for a TN Visa to work in Austin.
