MEXICAN TNs NO LONGER NEED USCIS APPROVAL

Rating: 4 votes, 5.00 average.
by Chris Musillo

Traditionally Mexican nationals have had to get pre-clearance from the domestic USCIS prior to applying for their Mexican TN visa. This has added cost and time to the TN process. Recently however the US streamlined the process for Mexican TN workers. Mexican TN workers can now directly apply (http://travel.state.gov/content/visa...ent/nafta.html) at the US Embassy or Consulate for their visa.

The Mexican national should now complete the electronic DS-160 as the first step and include a detailed US Employment Letter. The letter should include the legal analysis confirming that the offered position is one of the NAFTA occupations listed on NAFTA Chapter 16, Annex 1603, Appendix 1603.d.1 (https://www.nafta-sec-alena.org/Defa...-US#Ap1603.D.1).

MU Law advises that the Employment letter includes:


  • Job Title
  • Qualifying profession in which the applicant will be engaging (from the NAFTA Professional Job Series List)
  • Detailed description of proposed employment
  • Location of proposed employment
  • Full or Part-time (specify no. of hours per week)
  • Proposed wages per hour/week
  • Justification for employee with applicant’s profession and duration of proposed employment (explain justification)
  • Type of licensure required for proposed employment (note: compliance enforcement is the responsibility of local or state authority and lack of licensure is not a basis for visa refusal)



Here is the list of qualified Healthcare Occupations:

Job title Qualification
Dentist D.D.S., D.M.D., Doctor en Odontologia or Doctor en Cirugia Dental; or state/provincial license
Dietitian Baccalaureate or Licenciatura Degree; or state/provincial license
