NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) has virtually opened the doors for Canadians and businesses seeking to enter the U.S markets. Large corporations, small businesses and professionals are seizing new opportunities to work in the United States.
Any foreign national can apply for a US work visa. However, if you are not Canadian or Mexican, you will not be eligible to apply for a TN Visa under NAFTA. However, other US Work visas such as L-1, E-2, H-1B are certainly open to you.
Canadians and other nationals can also apply based on non-immigrant employment and investment applications under other categories such as:
- H-1B Specialty Occupations
- H-2B Non-Agricultural Workers
- E-1 Treaty Traders and E-2 Treaty Investors
- J-1 Visa for Education and Cultural Exchange

My attorney was a great asset for me to obtain my TN visa. He helped put my all my documents together and prepared me thoroughly. He helped me approach the border with confidence to apply for my TN. Now I am working and enjoying being in the USA. – Pamela H
