Anyone have any experience with premium processing times taking longer than 15 days for TN visas lately?

    I'm also waiting for a TN which is being obtained using premium processing. OP are you just curious if it will take longer than 15 days or have you been waiting for more than 15 days? My application was submitted last week.

      I'm in the same boat as you. Was also curious about how likely it can be processed within 15 days, especially since there's a 4-day long weekend coming up. Hopefully it does get processed within the advertised 15 days. Are you doing a fresh TN or change of employer? Do you know what the success rate is for approved petitions?

    @YwWb48.. yes you can cross the border.. while entering US you have to tell the officer that you want both the TNs as you didn’t quit your job yet and you plan to join the new employer in 1 or 2 weeks. You are allowed to have more than one valid TN’s at any point of time
