TN Visa term

Post by Neo » Fri Sep 03, 2010 9:35 pm

Everywhere on the Web TN visa is referred to as having 1 year term. I came accross few posts where it was saying three years. Was it recently extended to three years?

About 4 years ago, it was extended to 3 years. Your sponsor must of course request the term of upto 3 years.

The USCIS announced yesterday that it is publishing a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to increase the maximum amount of time a TN visa holder can remain in the U.S. before seeking readmission or extension of stay from one year to three years. The goal behind the proposed rule is to provide TN visa holders similar visa terms as other skilled worker visas, such as H-1B.
Under the current regulations, TN visa holders must seek extensions or readmission every year. While in many circumstances such extension or readmission is without issues, TN visa holders often complain of the cumbersome year
