foreign workers with no visa sponsor req

By dcmchattie ·
IT staffers would do well to learn about another visa: TN-1. This is a work visa for which there is: 1)no quota; 2) no wait period 3) almost nothing required of the sponsor. It isn't mentioned in the article about visas.

The TN-1 visa is for Canadians and Mexicans, as part of the North American Free Trade Agreement. It is a 'rubber stamp' provided when crossing the border as long as the job title on their offer letter is 'computer systems analyst'. It is that easy.

However, it is inefficient and infair that employers don't appreciate the distinction between an H1-B and the TN-1 and refuse to accept applications from visa workers. Employers are also missing out on a ripe opportunity to pick up quality talent at very little expense.

The absence of TN-1 visas from your article on work visas and shows how little knowledge is out there.

More information on TN-1 visas

by N34crocker In reply to foreign workers with no v ...

I agree that employers should learn
about TN-1 visas. Employers need to be
aware that to obtain a TN-1 visa a
candidate needs to have a university
degree, be a citizen of either Canada or
Mexico, a letter of intent for a position
authoried under the North American Free
Trade Agreement. ie. " Management
Consultant, Computer Systems Analyst ".
The employer needs to be aware that the
employee will need to renew this visa
every year. This type of visa is a good way
to get the skilled employees that you are
looking for without all the hassles
assocaited with other types of Visas. for
more information see or I hope
this will help employers and expand their
Knowledge about TN-1 visas.
