My SHORT Story - Management Consulting TN Visa

Post Sun Dec 28, 2014 11:53 am

Hey guys,

I've been roaming these forums as well as many other ones for awhile regarding TN Visas. I originally was trying to find an accounting job... but without an accounting degree it was beyond tough and many times I got shot down when posting in forums asking if it was good enough for a TN Visa.

I came across an associate consultant position that I received an offer for in Arizona. It's at a consulting firm. I flew to Detroit, crossed the Port Huron border into Sarnia then crossed back.

Told the border officer I was looking to apply for my TN and was directed to another officer who parked me. I stood in line for awhile until it was my turn. When I was called in, the CBP officer didn't seem like he was too happy. He just said "Alright, show me what you got". I put out my degree + transcripts and he didn't look at it. Gave him the letter from my employer, my offer letter and my resume. He read through it a few times and said "I don't think I can approve you, I just declined someone in this position a week ago." I asked him politely for a reason and he went on to tell me that management consulting is only supposed to be on a contractual basis not on a company payroll. I explained to him that it could either be contractual, or if you're hired onto a Management Consulting firm that is allowed as well. He took 15-20 minutes to look into what I was saying in depth, spoke to himself a bit and then got up, walked over to grab a form, filled it out and had his supervisor sign it. It came from the "TN Visa denial criteria" cubby so I was very worried. He came back and said "okay, $56". I paid and had a simple "Have fun." and I was through.

I was very nervous and shaking the whole time as I have no work experience and this is my first job but it all worked out! Just goes to show that as long as you've done all your research and are very polite, the CBP agents do make mistakes and will look into their mistakes before completely declining you!

I didn't receive much information after though, I have my paper I-94... And I've looked into the SSN (10 day waiting period before applying) and stuff, is there anything else that I should know?

Thank you! :D :D

Hi Assolute and E34619
Thank you very much for your guidance.

Yesterday I went to Niagara Rainbow bridge and I got TN visa under MC category for 3 years. I reached at the border at 3 PM and waited inside for another 1 hour. Then a lady officer called me inside and asked whether I made any phone call before coming to this office. When I said 'No", she said there is a TN specialist and he is already gone. The officer asked me my duties and she checked my duties mentioned in the support letter. She was not happy with one or two duties mentioned in Support letter and said these duties are for Managers and not for Management consultant. Then she took my file to another officer to verify it, but the officer asked her to check only my degree and approve it. I was very happy that time because I have MBA Degree. The Lady officer started entering all details in her system. I paid 56 dollars through credit card, because I had only Canadian dollars and they won't accept it. Thanks God. I will be flying this week to US.

Thank you all for sharing your story. I have just had an offer for investment banking associate come through from the US. The HR person insists I come in under the category of management consultant. I would like to send some research over to convince them that they'd rather put me under the accountant category as I have had some Financial planning and analysis experience in the last two years. (I am a canadian engineer with a MBA specializing in finance). Any advice or research that you might have would be very useful as I do not believe the management consultant category would be acceptable. Also, would you recommend I cross the border (driving in) only during hours that the TN specialist is available?

The last novel I sold began as a short story. Sure, this happens at times, and when it does, its pretty cool.
