Temporary Visas


T visa status
was created for victims of severe forms of human trafficking who are physically present in the U.S. and can assist as material witnesses in the investigation or prosecution of traffickers. An application for T visa status requires formal endorsement by a law enforcement agency investigating the trafficker(s). Nearly all grounds of inadmissibility may be waived, and individuals in T visa status may adjust to permanent residence after three years. A total of 5,000 T visas may be granted per fiscal year, and 5,000 adjustments may be granted per year for individuals in T visa status.
