J1 visa to TN visa

Under the US Mexico Canada Agreement (USCMA) TN professionals are not subject to the two-year home residency requirement. Since USMCA professionals are not subject to the two-year home residency requirement they are still able to obtain TN visa status. See how the J-1 two-year home residency requirement applies to TN visa holders.

Can I get a TN visa if I am subject to the J-1 home residency requirement?

The two-year home residency requirement for J-1 visa holders only applies only to immigrant visa (IV) applicants, and to H1B visa and L1 visa applicants.  TN visa applicants and their family members are still able to receive visas and enter the United States as USMCA professionals and are not subject to the two-year home residency requirement. 

If you were previously under J-1 visa status in the United States and subject to the two-year home residency requirement, this will not impact your ability to obtain TV visa status under the USMCA.
