Approved by mail for another 3, do I need to turn in my old I797A+I94 at the border?

    I was approved for another 3 years on TN, by mail. Thanks everyone for the advice and support.

    I am thinking of going back to Canada for a visit.

    Do I need to turn in the old I797A+I94 at the border when I am coming back?

    The I797A and I94 was combined and printed on an ONE page document.

    Thanks

    No. Keep for your records.

    The need to turn in an I-94 at the border is only when you are leaving US for good and have given up that status.

    Take the new I-94 and staple it into your passport, and update your I-9

    TN Renewal

    My TN visa will expire in Aug 2012. I want to try for 3 years this time. I am waiting for my new passport so that I can TN visa request by mail. How much time it took getting TN by mail?

    You don't need an up-to-date passport to apply for TN by mail. You will get 3-year TN simply by including a copy of your picture page and a copy of your current I-94.

    The issue with passport expiruy and TN is only at the border.

    TNs by mail take 2-3 months,. but you reamin in status while it is pending.

    So, don't associate your pasport renewal with your TN renewal. By mail, they are completely independant from each other.

    But if you plan to go to canada in the next 3 montyhs, just renew passport there, and apply for TN as you come back.
