United States Citizenship and Immigration Services has published a policy memorandum stating that it will restrict TN applications in the profession of economist to a narrow range of economic analysis duties.
BAL Analysis: The new guidance may have a major impact on financial firms. It reverses the previous USCIS practice of approving TN status for Canadian and Mexican nationals with economic degrees to work as financial analysts, market research analysts, and marketing specialists. Because the profession of “financial analyst” is not on the list of NAFTA professions, a determination by USCIS that a position primarily involves financial analyst duties could now result in denial of the TN application.
