What does NAFTA have to do with immigration?
NAFTA is the North American Free Trade Agreement. It creates special economic and trade relationships for the United States, Canada and Mexico. The agreement deals with business visitors, inter-corporate transferees, investors and professionals. Most of the agreement addresses the TN professional category.
The non-immigrant NAFTA Professional (TN) work visa allows citizens of the United States and Mexico, as NAFTA professionals, to work in Canada. It also allows citizens of Mexico and Canada to work in the United States. Permanent residents are not able to apply to work as a NAFTA professional. Professionals must meet all specified requirements. See our article entitled Professionals Under NAFTA for a complete list and the requirements for all the professions recognized.
