TN Visa Processing under COVID-19

OPERATING UNDER COVID-19

We are committed to providing our clients with the service and support we have become known for and continue to do so under these unique circumstances. We are committed to providing you with the best support possible during this uncertain time. CBP is limiting travel to essential travel only. Essential travel in most cases includes travel for work on a valid work visa.

CBP recommends filing for TN visa extensions or changes of status by mail with US Citizenship and Immigration Services whenever possible. In the event that filing by mail is not an option, CBP continues to process TN visa applications at the border. If traveling for essential purposes take proper precautions and wear a mask. 

April 22, 2020 Executive Order

President Donald J. Trump signed an Executive order on U.S. Immigration that takes effect on Thursday, April 23, 2020 at 11:59 PM (ET), and suspends the entry of a very limited number of individuals seeking entry to the U.S. as immigrants. Effectively, this order merely delays the processing or certain cases for 60 days from April 23, 2020. If you are currently inside the U.S. on a valid work visa, including a TN visa, you are NOT impacted. If your case is currently pending with USCIS, you are NOT impacted. Most immigration cases will NOT be impacted by this order. 

This order DOES NOT impact non-immigrant workers including the following:

  • TN visa holders, or those applying for TN visas by mail or at the border, OR
  • L1 visa holders, or those applying for L1 visas by mail or at the border, OR
  • H1B visa holders, or those applying for H1B visas, OR
  • E visa holders, or those applying for E visas, OR
  • Any other non-immigrant worker that currently has a work visa.
