Mexican citizens have a couple of options to handle a TN Visa status change of employer at the border.
A Mexican citizen that holds a valid TN Visa is not required to first obtain a new visa before changing or adding employers. In the case of TN Visa applicants, a Mexican citizen may present either:
- An I-797 approval notice issued by USCIS
- A TN Visa application in support of new employment under a qualifying TN Visa profession
CBP will then issue a new I-94 and admit the applicant under a new TN Visa for the new employer. However, employment for the new employer cannot commence until the new TN Visa has been approved either by mail with USCIS or at a qualifying US port of entry.
