"TN" Changes for Canadian Nationals
The Department of Homeland Security has recently announced that a Canadian TN need not present a license at the time of application for admission to the United States. The DHS noted that licenses may be used as an alternative document for admission, but they are not the documents that are primarily required for admission. However, note that states continue to impose license requirements, such as for nurses, before such an individual may work in the United States. Therefore, both Canadian and Mexican TNs (e.g. nurses) may obtain admission in TN status without having the respective state license at the time of admission at the border.
