TN Visa Approval Economist – Investment Analysis

Applicant, a citizen of Canada, had a job opportunity with a company that provided real estate and investment management services.

In the position offered, the applicant would be responsible for analyzing economic issues with respect to the company’s investment portfolio and to facilitate the transfer of certain portfolio assets following a corporate restructuring. As the position was consistent with the Economist occupation as defined in the Occupational Outlook Handbook, we concluded that the job could be classified under the Economist TN visa category. The applicant possessed a Bachelor’s degree in Economics in addition to an MBA degree. He therefore qualified for an Economist TN.

We assisted the company in preparing a TN visa support letter and accompanied the applicant to the port-of-entry to present the application. CBP reviewed the application, interviewed the applicant, and issued the TN for a three year period.
