I'm planning to apply for a TN visa at the US border. I'm accompanying my wife, and she is going to study in the US. We are going there a month and a half prior to my job start date and 2 weeks before the start date of her program, in order to settle down, find a place, etc.
Is it true that TN visa is issued only a week before the job start date? That seems very close to the job start date.
