This Visa Program for Canadian Professionals Was On Trump’s Hit List. Not Anymore.
Immigration attorney Leon Fresco was quoted after Treaty NAFTA (TN) visas were kept in the new NAFTA treaty, that President Donald Trump announced on Oct. 1. TN visas allow high-skilled workers to come to the U.S. and obtain work for three years. Most workers that use the TN visas are doctors, nurses, engineers, accountants, hotel managers, land surveyors and computer systems analysts. These have become a popular alternative for such professionals as traditional visa program only allow entry for one year.
"The Canadians and Mexicans are also winners by keeping the TN-visa in existence in its current form, which allows their companies to have much-needed presence in the United States and allows mobility of workers across the continent," said Mr. Fresco.
