TN Visa - Frequently Asked Question

I have been on a TN Visa working as a W2 employee. Now i have a chance to work at another company as a 1099 contractor. Can I obtain the TN Visa on a 1099?


Yes, but the 1099 is a little tricky since its for contractors and freelancers. You can do it as long as you operate as yourself using your SSN number and US Immigration can see that you are employed by that company. Your TN Letter will state that this company is employing you, which meets the NAFTA requirements. Opening your own corporation and doing a TN through this business may not be considered valid and can raise concerns.
