Usmca Agreement And Tn Visa

This type of visa was designed to allow workers from Canada and Mexico to work in the United States. It uses an optimized application process. To be eligible for the visa, you must be a citizen of Canada or Mexico. Currently, the number of TN visas issued remains the same. There have been concerns that the Trump administration will seek to significantly reduce the number of such visas issued. Canada wanted to increase the number of TN visas issued and it was ultimately decided that the numbers would remain stable for the time being. The TN visa is only granted to people wishing to work in certain fields. NAFTA introduced the TN Visa Class, which allows Canadian and Mexican professionals who qualify and who can justify a qualified job for a U.S. employer to work in the United States as NAFTA professionals without immigrant origin. NAFTA has listed a list of NT occupations that fall under the TN category, including: accountants, computer systems analysts, mathematicians, economists, business advisors, registered nurses, engineers, lawyers, scientific assistants, graphic designers, librarians and hotel managers. Both Canada and the United States argue that the revised trade agreement benefits workers in both countries, but there are clear winners and losers with respect to the unchanged visa regime. The agreement between the United States and Mexico-Canada (USMCA) came into force on July 1, 2020. What does this mean for current TN visa holders or those who wish to apply for TN visa status? Not very.

The United States denounces an agreement on the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) To do this type of work in the United States, a visa is not required for a Canadian citizen entering as a NAFTA professional, although a visa may be issued on request for qualified Canadian visa applicants. For Canada, the compromise means that Canadian companies can continue to hire skilled U.S. and Mexican workers while bypassing the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA), which typically requires proof that a Canadian cannot hold this position. Canadian professionals, including engineers, doctors, nurses, hotel managers, surveyors and accountants, are among the workers who continue to benefit from the program. In order to work in the United States, authorized Canadians must not apply for a visa, but only obtain NT status at a port of entry to the United States.
