How long will my TN visa be valid? Under the USMCA (NAFTA) a Canadian or Mexican citizen may be admitted for up to three (3) years to work in the United States on a TN visa as long as the passport presented has a validity date throughout the requested period of admission. In addition to verifying passport validity, NAFTA Officers will also reference contract periods and offer letter dates. TN status will be limited to the length of passport validity, employment length or contract length.
