TN status renewal by mail...quick question

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So here is the scoop. I have been working in the US under TN status for the last 4 years. Each year I left and renewed the TN status...samer job, but the school has me on annual renewing contracts (boo).

Anyways, I was considering doing the "renewal by mail" option for my next year of employment. The issue is this:

  • My current visa won't expire until August 13th, 2013
  • My new TN status is scheduled to start August 15th, 2013 (or so)

My question is this...I am planning on doing a "roadtrip" across Canada from the 27th of june through to the 13th of July. Am I allowed to leave the US while my "renewal by mail" is pending???

Thank you for any information that cen be provided.

Technically, you should be able to travel while an extension of status is pending as you are returning before the new one takes effect. My question is why not get the new TN when you are returning from Canada and skip the extension process? You’ll get a TN for one year and a month if you show them your current contract and the contract that starts on Aug. 14 or 15.
