How long can you stay in the U.S. with a TN Visa?
The TN Visa is a nonimmigrant visa. This means that those on the TN Visa must maintain an intent to depart the Country at the end of their temporary stay. The TN Visa can be obtained for a time period of one (1) day and up to three (3) years at a time. The TN Visa can be extended as needed with no limits on the amount of extensions. This means that as long as you maintain your permanent ties, and intent to return to your home country, you can renew a TN Visa indefinitely.
Can a TN visa lead to a green card?
Yes, but with caution. The TN visa does not have a direct path to a green card such as an L1A visa has. However, a TN visa holder can transition to a green card through employment through the same process as an H1B visa holder, Permanent Labor Certification Process (PERM). As this process can be complex, it is best to consult with lawyer with experience handling TN visa to green card cases.
