What is a U-Visa?

A U-Visa, technically called “U nonimmigrant status” is a lawful temporary status, valid for 4 years, for undocumented victims of certain crimes who have endured abuse and are willing to assist law enforcement authorities in investigating or prosecuting criminal activity.

The U.S. Congress established this special visa category to provide eligible individuals with temporary legal status and protection and to enable law enforcement to protect their communities. Without the U visa, undocumented crime victims may be unwilling to come forward and report the crime.

The primary purpose of a U-Visa is to encourage victims to report crimes without the fear of getting deported. It aims to support law enforcement efforts in bringing perpetrators to justice. 

Individuals who qualify for a U-Visa may also be eligible for work authorization and the possibility of adjusting their status to become lawful permanent residents (green card holders) after three years of having the U visa. The U-Visa offers a crucial pathway for eligible victims to come forward, seek justice, and rebuild their lives in the United States.
