Hi,I'm a Canadian working in the US under a TN visa. However, I just noticed that on my latest i94, which I got in December 2016, I got a B2 visa classification. How do I go about to correct this and could there be any complications since it's been 5 months since my last entry to the US.I also recently moved and was about to file an AR-11 and it asks for my classification "Permanent resident", "Visitor", "Student", "Other". I was going to put Other and specify TN professional. Can I still do this? I need to file by Sunday to not exceed 10 days since my change of address. (For context. I am only changing units in the same apartment building.)Thanks!Gary

I am an RN. I am currently working in icu and I have a TN

Hi. I am an RN. I am currently working in icu and I have a TN visa. I need to renew my visa. The hospital I am working at is telling that I can renew my visa and apply for residency. I am currently thinking about changing hospitals, but the new hospital does not have an immigration lawyer and I need to know if it's really possible to request recidency as an RN when I am a Mexican citizen. The prior lawyer that helped me obtain my visa initially told me I couldn't.JA: What is your official status? Do you have any pending applications or petitions with USCIS?Customer: I have a TN visa, due to be renewed in July. Nothing else.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Just the hospitals lawyerJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I cannot think of anything else

I am an alien resident and my last I-94 (associated with a temporary TN work visa and my current employer) was mailed to me from UCIS, wich I then use to renew my license driver, to demonstrate I am a lawful resident. It looks I will not have the opportunity to return to my origin country (Canada) before the end of my current employement; will it cause problem to enter back (as a tourist) in the united state in the future?

I was on a J-1 trainee visa which is valid until July 2017.

I was on a J-1 trainee visa which is valid until July 2017. I wanted to switch to a TN status as a Canadian NAFTA professional so that I could hold concurrent statuses and work 2 positions. I got all the required documentation and letters from BOTH employers and went to apply at the border.After some interrogation, the border official put me through on the TN status, valid until December 2017. HOWEVER he only listed ONE of my employers (the new one, which is only part time and is not the job I was doing on the J-1). I am currently on the payroll at the organization with which I have the J-1 visa. I still have to fill out all the required forms to be officially hired by the employer for which I have just received TN authorization. I am now in Canada visiting family but I will be going back across the border to the USA in 3 days.Is my J1 visa invalidated?Can I still switch it to the TN status?If it isn't invalidated and I can't switch it to the TN status, can I come back through at the border on my J1 to continue working for my main organization?

I'm here on tn visa and my employer sponsoring me for GC. My labor certification just got approved. I have five more months of TN. The employer lawyer suggests filing i140 and i485 together and using EAD to work after my TN expires. What are my risks? What if I140 get denied? Can I withdraw I485 and request new TN since I have no intent anymore? My husband has his own TN, if my I140 is denied how it will affect his status?

I was arrested and will likely receive an MACD in New York

I was arrested and will likely receive an MACD in New York for Marijuana possession. If the case is dismissed and sealed- can this still deny my re-entry to the US if I'm on a TN Visa? Do I need documentation to prove that all charges were dismissed? Could this be a reason for denial of permanent residence as I'm marrying an American next year? Does it matter if I have the charges reduced to disorderly conduct?
