Can I apply for a TN Visa without a job offer or an employer? - Resources Blog - US Immigration FAQs - Richards and Jurusik Immigration Law - Buffalo NY

A TN Visa is employer-specific, which means that each TN Visa is tied to a specific role for a specific employer. A TN Visa requires a job offer or a contract with a US entity.

  • Working in the United States for a company requires a job offer under a qualifying TN Visa profession
  • A TN Visa only grants authorization for that specific role with that specific employer
  • You cannot self-sponsor or be self-employed on a TN Visa
  • If you are an independent contractor, this requires a contract with a US entity.
  • Working for a different employer requires a new TN Visa prior to commencing employment

In any case, a TN Visa requires proof that you will be performing services for a US entity.
