3 Year TNs Available at Border Now

Our office has received notification from a Chief Supervisor at the Buffalo CBP office that CBP now has the authority to process and issue TNs valid for three years.

USCIS, which has jurisdiction over I-129 petitions requesting TN visa status, announced the extension of TNs from one to three years on October 16, 2008.

But CBP, which has jurisdiction over applications for TN status submitted at the border, had to wait for guidance from its headquarters before it could implement the new rule change.
