NAFTA Visas

The United States, Canada and Mexico accepted NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement in 1994. NAFTA allows for citizens of these three countries to cross each others borders for short periods of time without the need for a visa. Certain Canadian and Mexican professionals are allowed to enter and stay in the United States for both business and pleasure purposes, under what is known as TN status. A person with TN status is granted a one-year stay in the U.S., with the opportunity to apply for one-year stay extensions. People entering the United States under NAFTA or TN status need to understand all the rules and regulations for acceptable procedures.

Some obstacles, like youthful indiscretion, arrest or even a prior criminal conviction can present difficulties for a citizen in those countries. A waiver of inadmissibility is possible in certain circumstances.
