Economies of 26 Latin American countries show signs of weakness and political unrest and diminished opportunities for investment and growth make it easier for American companies to find educated, skilled workers from this region. With planning and solid counsel, Latin Americans can be working in the United States faster than some local hires.

Companies can use certain non-immigrant visa options available to Latin Americans to hire them expediently, cost-effectively and sometimes without having to first apply through immigration authorities in the U.S. Temporary work visa applications can be presented directly at a U.S. consulate abroad to return to the U.S. for employment.

• TN for Mexican professionals: A list of 61 designated professions and the minimum education, experience or both required to qualify for the TN visa are found in the North American Free Trade Agreement. Only Mexican nationals can take advantage of the TN visa. They can present their application at a U.S. consulate in Mexico and will obtain a one-, two- or three-year TN visa stamp to enter the U.S.
