I am working in TN status and my employer said they are willing to file a PERM case for me. However, I was told this could create problems when renewing my TN later because of immigrant intent. Should I avoid moving forward with the green card case?


A person being admitted to the United States in TN status must demonstrate nonimmigrant intent. However, even an approved I-140, by itself, is not sufficient reason to deny a person’s TN application or extension request. (08.Feb.2024)
