Hi everyone, I'm a US trained nurse and a Canada, I'm trying to go back to the US with a TN visa and I need help on the job letter and anything else that will be helpful in finding companies that hire for TN sponsorship. Thanks
You don't need sponsorship for the TN, it's technically a status and not a visa. Instead of being stamped in as a visitor, you are stamped in with work privileges.
The first thing you will need to do is apply for your CGFNS visa screen certificate. Then you just need to apply for a job. The hospital or agency that hires you needs to give you a letter detailing your job description and requesting that you be admitted to the US on a TN status for X amount of time - they can request up to 3 years at a time (you can renew it again and again when it expires- there is no limit to how many times a TN is renewed). You take the visa screen certificate, the work letter, and your degree (no one has ever actually looked at mine, but the one time I didn't bring it he asked where it was!) to the immigration control officer and tell them "I would like to apply for a TN" and they will send you off to the secondary screening room to have everything processed.
Best thing is to tell companies that the TN is NOT a visa and they don't need to apply or petition for anything. You simply need a job offer letter that requests you be admitted to the US to work.
