Hiring someone on TN

The employer does not need to file the visa on employee's behalf. Canadian citizens can take their TN petition to the U.S. Border or pre-flight check to get an I-94 card for entry. Mexican citizens have to apply through the U.S. embassy in Mexico to get the visa stamped on the passport before entry.

Green Card

Unlike H-1B and L-1, TN visa is not a dual intent visa. Therefore, applying for a green card could result in losing the TN work status.
