USMCA

President of the United States, Donald Trump, has officially replaced the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). Pres. Trump has signed this new treaty based on his promise of fairer trade for the American replacing the NAFTA calling it a victory for American workers, farmers, manufacturers, and businesses alike.

As for the TN visas from the NAFTA deal, they have not been amended too much for the new United States Mexico Canada Agreement. The TN visa enables professionals and skilled workers who are citizens of Canada, the US, or Mexico to work in any of the three countries. https://www.uscis.gov/working-in-the-united-states/temporary-workers/tn-nafta-professionals

However while arguing for TN, applicants can no longer reference NAFTA but now must reference USMCA.

USMCA is supposed to revitalize the United States trade relationship with Canada and Mexico. It includes new provisions for American intellectual property and gives protections to American innovators. Along with that, USMCA has new ways to prohibit unfair currency practices and create a stable exchange rate.
