Who should get a TN visa?
The TN non-immigrant visa category is for Canadian and Mexican citizens. This visa enables Mexican or Canadian citizens to be admitted to the United States to engage in "business activities at a professional level" in certain fields for one or more specific employers.
If there will be more than one employer, each employer will have to apply for a separate TN visa.
TN status may be granted for as long as the employment offer specifies (up to one year), and this status may be extended indefinitely in one-year increments.
If your department is considering bringing an international scholar/employee to campus on this type of visa, please contact Cathy Donahue in the Office of International Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
