Second TN part time and working voluntary for experience


Registered Users (C)
What are the rules for working part time for a IT consultancy remotely when you are already on a full time TN permit in the USA?

Can we voluntarily work part time with no money transactions just for the experience.
Working remotely has always been a grey area of immigration law. Different people interpret it differently. Generally not allowed.

Volunteering for a job that would normally get paid, is not allowed under US immigration rules.
Obviously, if the second IT job is in US you need a new concurrent TN, regardless of the remote/onsite or part/full time nature.

Any work (paid or otherwise) that's outside your approved TN application is not authorized while on US soil.

As Amberleaf stated, there are occasions that one can work for a foreign company without a status, while on US soil. One should consult an attorney to make sure. It is NOT however, absolutely forbidden, as jixca contends.

Thanks for all the help (mentors)and the interview is for tomorrow.

Will look up on the process for filing a concurrent part time TN after consulting attorney.

Regards and au revoir.

Concurrent part-time TN for US employer is never a problem. Working for foreign employer (who would not be eligible to petition TN for you) is what we are discussing here.
