|Spouses and children under (21 years of age) of a TN visa holder are admitted in TD (Trade Dependent) status. Dependents who are Canadian citizens can apply for TD status at the same time as the TN, or by presenting a copy of the TN-1’s I-94 card and employment letter if/when they wish to enter separately.
Dependents who do not hold Canadian citizenship are required to obtain a TD visa at a U.S. Embassy prior to admission. The application should include:
- TN’s letter of employment
- Copy of the TN’s I-94 card (if already in the U.S.)
- Copy of marriage or birth certificate
Dependents of Mexicans are required to obtain a TD visa to enter the U.S.
