Obtaining a TN Visa
Generally, Canadian citizens can request admission at a U.S. port of entry under the TN classification without applying for a visa beforehand. Mexican citizens will need to apply for a visa at a U.S. consulate before seeking entry.
The visa grants an initial stay of three years, but you may be able to extend this status. You also have the option of obtaining derivative TN nonimmigrant status for your spouse and any children under 21. They won’t be authorized to work, however, and they can only stay for as long as you do. Unfortunately, TN visas are not dual intent visas, which means you won’t be able to adjust your status to permanent residence.
