The documentation requirement was imposed to make it clear that the proposed activity is incidental or related to the sale of devices or machinery or computer software. The other parties to the agreement meet the same requirements. The TN-1 visa is specifically designed for Canadian citizens who wish to work in the United States as one of the NAFTA/USMCA professionals. In general, Canadian citizens do not need a visa to visit the United States. However, you need a visa to work in the United States. Unlike a traditional visa, you do not need to enter into prior documents with the U.S. government before arriving at a U.S. port of entry. You can come to the border and announce your intention to work on a TN visa. The paperwork is done directly at the border. However, they must prepare some documents in advance. The appendix is a complete list and cannot be interpreted. If a profession is not on the list, it is generally not a profession within the meaning of Appendix 1603.D.1.
However, public servants should authorize other professional titles in cases where the tasks are interchangeable. This can be confirmed by reference to the National Occupation Classification (NOC). Canada, Mexico and the United States have a free trade agreement. Although the agreement was originally called NAFTA, it was updated in 2018 as USMCA. USMCA Schedule 1603.D.1 contains a list of professionals and their training requirements. The following table contains an unofficial list of professional credentials without the required educational or licensing requirements. There are approximately 60 occupations listed on NAFTA/USMCA. Individuals with experience in these occupations may travel to the United States on a TN visa, provided they meet all requirements. Some medical-oriented jobs also require third-party certification.
A registered nurse must be certified by the Foreign Nursing School Graduates Commission. B and an occupational therapist must be certified by the National Board for die Zertifizierung in Dereriche. Physiotherapists must be certified by the Foreign Credentialing Commission on Physical Therapy. Once this certification has been received, it is valid for five years. You must renew it as long as you plan to work in the United States. Leases must be the first cross-border transaction that must result in a sale. The lease agreement between the Canadian buyer and a final consumer applies as long as the equipment remains the property of the original purchaser and the sales, warranty or service contract is still in effect. The revised USMCA leaves the list of eligible occupations on the NAFTA list unchanged. In addition, the USMCA stipulates that there will be no work permit quota and, therefore, access between countries between eligible professionals is not numerically restricted. On July 7, 2020, the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) replaced the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The criteria for admission to the USMCA are the same as under NAFTA.
