TN Visa Approval – Physician
The applicant, a citizen of Canada, was offered a job as a Public Health Physician, which would involve investigating and analyzing healthcare associated infections.
JOB TITLE / DUTIES:
The Physician TN visa category is limited to only teaching or research, and generally does not allow patient care.
As such, it was important that the applicant’s TN Support Letter clearly indicated that the position offered clearly indicated a research role with no patient contact.
Additionally, as further proof of eligibility, in my cover letter to USCBP I explained and evidenced how the position qualified for TN visa status under the Physician category.
As part of the application packet, I included documentation evidencing that Physicians conducted research to understand and reduce healthcare associated infections.
The applicant possessed the requisite medical license.
TN visa status application filed at the Buffalo, NY Peace Bridge port-of-entry.
Approved same day as filed.
