USCIS Issues Clarifying Guidance on NAFTA TN Status Eligibility for Economists

USCIS issued a policy update on 12/18/17 clarifying that professional economists requesting TN status must engage primarily in activities consistent with the profession of an economist.

Individuals who work primarily in other occupations related to the field of economics — such as financial analysts, marketing analysts, and market research analysts — are NOT eligible for classification as a TN economist.
