Immigration Practice Under NAFTA and Other Free Trade Agreements addresses the flow of business professionals and workers crossing North America's borders during the normal course of business and for employment. AILA's NAFTA manual also covers the U.S.-Singapore/Chile free trade agreements and their impact on U.S. immigration.

Now in its third edition, the NAFTAmanual provides invaluable sample support letters and checklists as well as guidance and critical information on moving individuals between countries, including:

  • Broad concepts of NAFTA
  • Laws that impact its implementation
  • Nonimmigrant business visitors
  • Temporary Entry Provisions
  • Processing applications at the POE for TNs, E-2s, and L-1s
  • Mexico Entry and Exit Requirements
  • and more!

“There is no other publication available that offers such hands-on guidance. Along with INS Inspector’s NAFTA Handbook, this volume presents comprehensive, critical information that will provide you with guidance in handling NAFTA cases and supply you with an overview of Canadian and Mexican laws from practitioners who know how important it is to share their knowledge and experience.”
