I was born in India but will soon become a Canadian citizen. I understand that, for green card purposes, I still will be counted based on my country of birth, but what about applying for TN or E-2 status?


Eligibility for E-1/E-2 and TN categories generally is based on country of citizenship. So, an Indian-born Canadian citizen typically is eligible to apply for either visa, assuming those nonimmigrant visa requirements otherwise are met. (10.Mar.2022)
