Hiring Mexican Citizens Using the TN-2 Visa


When Does It Make Sense for a Company to Hire Mexican Nationals?

Why Mexican Citizens Specifically?

For all these reasons, it makes sense to hire Mexican nationals if you cannot easily find skilled professionals for open positions at your company. With the trade agreements in place between North American countries, working with professionals from Mexico can be simpler than in years past.

What Visa Categories Are Available?

What’s the Process Like?

Citizens of Mexico entering the United States on a TN-2 visa must ensure they are eligible and must apply for a visa before entering the U.S. This process requires a few steps.

To prepare for the interview, applicants will need to gather the documentation they need for the appointment, which will include a valid passport, photos, evidence of a job offer, evidence of education and license qualifications for the visa, and any additional documents required in the form.

After the interview at the embassy or consulate has taken place, a TN-2 visa might be issued. If approved, visa holders can apply for entry into the United States at a port of entry or pre-flight inspection station.

What Part of the Process is the Employer’s Responsibility?

If a profession is listed as TN-eligible, employers can search for qualified candidates in Mexico. Once they find a qualified worker, they will need to provide a letter of employment or employment contract to the employee. This will be used in the application process, so it must contain details such as job title and the duties which will be performed, the relevant qualifications of the applicant for the job, and the expected length of time the worker will be employed by the company. This letter should also establish how the duties to be performed are related to the particular qualifications of the TN-2 visa applicant.
