What is the difference between an offer letter and a TN visa application letter? My employer gave me an offer letter not an application letter. Now what do I do?


An offer letter is a contract between an employer and a potential employee, outlining the terms and conditions of the employment offer. A TN visa application letter, on the other hand, is a letter addressed to US immigration authorities, requesting permission to work in the US on a TN visa.

The main difference between the two letters is that the TN visa application letter must include additional information that is specific to the TN visa requirements. This information includes:

  • The name and address of the employer
  • The job title and description
  • The salary and benefits
  • The start and end dates of employment
  • A statement that the job is a professional position listed in Annex 1603.D.1 of the USMCA (NAFTA)
  • A statement that the applicant meets the qualifications for the job

TN visa application letters are typically longer and more detailed than offer letters. They should also be written in a formal and business-like tone.

What to do if you only have an offer letter

If you have only received an offer letter from your employer, you will need to write a TN visa application letter yourself. You can find templates and sample letters online, but be sure to tailor the letter to your specific situation and include all of the required information.

Submit a TN Visa Application Letter if you want to successfully obtain your TN Status.
Each time you renew your TN Visa create a new application letter – do not re-use the application letter from the previous year.

Your next step is to review some TN Visa sample letters and then follow our instructions to create your own application letter.
