The Tn (Trade Nafta) Was Created In 1994 By The North American Free Trade Agreement, A Multi-Country Trade Agreement Between The Us, Canada And Mexico. It Provides A Feasible Alternative To The H-1B Visa For The Citizens Of Mexico. While The Tn Visa Is Available To Both Mexican And Canadian Citizens In This Article We Will Be Looking At It Only From The Standpoint Of The Mexican Citizen.

Under The Current Procedure A Mexican Citizen Must First Obtain A Tn Visa At A Us Consulate (Generally In Mexico).
