Engineers & Professional Technicians

No. While there are specific requirements for the TN visa, including educational qualifications and job eligibility, the U.S. government does not directly dictate the wage that must be paid to TN visa holders.

The TN visa allows certain professionals from Canada and Mexico to work in the United States. However, it is not applicable to individuals from other countries such as India. Therefore, you cannot directly sponsor an engineer from India on a TN visa.

If you’re looking to hire an engineer from India and bring them to the United States, there are alternative visa categories available, such as the H-1B visa. The H-1B visa allows U.S. employers to hire foreign workers in specialty occupations. It requires the employer to sponsor the employee and meet specific requirements, including demonstrating that there are no qualified U.S. workers available for the position. Our sister company, Wyngaard Law Firm can assist with this process. Please call us for a free consultation: 800-414-0978!

The TN visa is typically issued for an initial period of up to three years. After the initial period, it may be possible to renew the visa in three-year increments as long as the individual continues to meet the requirements of the TN visa category.

Yes! In fact, engineering students in Mexico study from US textbooks and many study in the United States and Europe. The Mexican government has adopted a policy of educating engineers with the intended purpose of working for international companies.

Engineering programs in Mexico are certified and reviewed by international organizations. CACEI (Consejo de Acreditacion de la Ensenanza de la Ingenieria) is the Mexican organization for accreditation. The educational expectation for engineering programs has grown significantly in recent years, as the engineering profession requires greater multidisciplinary collaboration due to the accelerated advancement in technology. ABET is the Accrediting Agency for Programs in Applied Science, Computing, Engineering and Technology in the United States. ABET accreditation ensures that a university program meets the quality standards of the profession for which the academic program prepares students. ABET is supported by a set of 35 professional societies, including the Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE), the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). The ABET accreditation process for programs outside the United States is identical to the accreditation process for programs within the United States.

These factories provide valuable experience for our recruits. 

Puerto Rican Workers

Puerto Rico is a territory of the United States, and its residents are U.S. citizens. Since Puerto Ricans are U.S. citizens, they generally do not require a visa to work in a U.S. factory or any other part of the United States. They have the same rights and privileges as citizens from the 50 states when it comes to employment and living in the United States.

The majority of our Puerto Rican recruits work for US mainland factories, working as technicians. 3 Amigo’s also places Puerto Rican engineers and nurses to work in the US mainland.

Yes! Our founding partner, Attorney Sarah Wyngaard, comes from an H-2B background. We started 3 Amigos Recruiting because of the H-2B cap and frustrations in recent years with the H-2B visa limits.

If you do decide H-2Bs are a better option for your business, our sister company, Wyngaard Law Firm LLC will provide a free legal consultation. Call us at 800-414-0978!
