I'm planning to apply for a TN Visa to start a job in late February. I'm graduating this semester and won't receive my diploma until late-march. I'm worried about signing a lease and preparing a move if there's a moderate chance I'd be denied for not having a diploma.
If my employer files a I-129 petition on my behalf with premium processing, is there a much lower chance that they'd ask to see my diploma? I know you're technically supposed to have all your supporting documentation as per the info here https://www.uscis.gov/working-in-the-united-states/temporary-workers/tn-nafta-professionals but I'm wondering if they'd be less strict. I will have a letter of attestation from my faculty saying I completed my degree, plus official sealed transcripts.
Looking forward to hearing your advice.
