    Direct Reports

    Is managing those direct reports the important part of your job, or is it being an accountant. You can't leave out an important task just to satisfy TN, if you are not doing a TN job. That is tailoring. Whay are they insistant on calling you a manager (rather than just asking for accountant TN)...

    Direct Reports

    No. What Job functions are you performing, and what TN category does the job, and your past credentials qualify for.

    TN Renewal Letter

    If you visit Canada frequently enough, I would do a border petition, but if the employer doesn'tmind paying, do I-129, it should not have to be premium processed.

    TN Renewal Letter

    Three points: Border petitions are always considered NEW TN petitions, so they take effect immediately, and can only last three years from date of entry. 9 weeks is WAY too soon to request a border TN when one already has one and nothing substantive is changing. You will simply be let in on...

    TN at local CBP office

    TN is an entry status, thus you need to be entering US, either at the POE at a US airport or port, or at an airport in Canada for flight going to US. Cannot be done at any local office inside US by walk-up.

    TN STATUS INTERVIEW QUES-

    Well, many here have based their hopes on luck and prayer, rather that a sound petition, so I thought these were primary questions that CBP asks. Another one: When returning to border after successful TN application, will you show our officer, as proof of continued employment: (a) an HR...

    TN STATUS INTERVIEW QUES-

    Couple more: What superstitious ritual have you followed to ensure successful petition? Which God did you pray to?

    DIRECT REPORTS - TN

    CBP officer is not going to do that grant, even at secondary inspection, he will simply ask that they get proof. And H1 is not that different from TN: both require current employment/sponsorship in order to gain entry on what is a multiple entry I-94 which can be valid for years. If an offcoer...

    TN Visa rejected, what to change

    Amen. It is difficult to listen to one who claims that people often lie to get TN, but bemoan when a CBP officer denies a very weak case -- and then suggest they lie.

    Claiming Umployment Insurance (NY) in Canada

    The EI process has no bearing on whether you will be let in or not. You do need to establish with CBP that you are not staying in US, should you not get a new TN.B2 entry after TN is not easy, since typically you have no foreign ties, and LOTS in US, which is contrary to B2 entry permission. Can...

    DIRECT REPORTS - TN

    I can list some websites if you like, or you can look some up yourself. Point is, our poster asked HR for some proof of current employment, so for whatever reason, he was concerned, I was merely suggesting some alternatives other than getting HR involved.

    Chance of getting TN in my case?

    So, does that mean if you don't get TN, God doesn't like you, or he wants you to stay in Canada? o_O

    TN Visa rejected, what to change

    1. This will probably work. 2. This may work, but not a slam dunk. The previous attempt, trying to link your degree course load with your experience was completely unacceptable, and was correctly rejected out-of-hand. Experience for CSA can only be used if one has a north american diploma (not...

    F2 to H4 COS

    You can always file the I-539 now, so that it will be approved based on the H1-B petition (copy of your I-1209 action notice, copy of marriage cert, passport, and her current I-94. She is in valid F2 right now, so there would be no issue filing I-539. Once H1 is approved, she really isn't in F2...
