TN Visa Approval – Sales Engineer Job
The applicant, a citizen of Canada, was offered a job as a Sales Engineer, which would involve the design, development, and technical sales of the company’s motion control systems.
I reviewed the position offered, and although sales-related positions are frequently questioned as being eligible for TN visa status, based on the position’s job duties and requirements, I believed the position could be classified under the Engineer TN visa category.
The applicant possessed a degree in Engineering related to the position.
JOB TITLE / DUTIES:
U.S. immigration frequently argues that sales-related positions do not qualify for TN visa status.
However, an argument for TN visa eligibility can be made for sales positions where it is established that the job requires a degree in the TN occupational field, and the applicant is performing duties requiring that degree.
In this case, it was imperative to show that the position required a degree in Engineering, and that the applicant was still performing engineering-related duties.
I prepared a detailed TN visa support letter that explained the engineering functions of the position, and how an engineering degree was required for the job.
The applicant possessed an Engineering degree majoring in Automotive Engineering.
In preparing the TN visa support letter, I explained how the applicant’s degree was relevant to the position offered.
