A Crime Victim May Apply for S Visa, T Visa or U Visa

Crime Victims or Assistance in Criminal Investigations May Apply for S Visa, T Visa or U Visa

If you are a victim of a crime or have valuable information that can help law enforcement authorities in investigating criminal activities, you may be eligible for certain visas and permanent residence in the US. You may be eligible for an S Visa, T Visa. or a U Visa.

S Visas

The S visa is granted to Aliens who have agreed to assist the Government in various investigative procedures leading to the arrest of individuals in connection with illegal or terrorist activities.

The two main categories of S visas are S-5 and S-6:

S-5 Visa – Application for an S-5 Visa is possible only if the applicant possess reliable information regarding an important aspect of a crime or pending commission of a crime, is willing to share this information with law enforcement officials or to testify in court, and that their presence in the US is necessary to the successful investigation or prosecution of the case.

S-6 Visa – Application for an S-6 Visa is possible only if the applicant possesses reliable information regarding an important aspect of a terrorist organization or plot and is willing to share this information with law enforcement officials or to testify in court, has or will be placed in danger for providing that information, and is eligible to receive an award from the State Department for providing such information.

S Visa holders are allowed to adjust status to permanent resident under a special provision under Section 245(j) of the US immigration and Nationality Act. If the information supplied by the alien has “substantially contributed” to a successful investigation or prosecution of a crime, they are eligible for adjustment of status. Similarly, if the alien’s information “substantially contributed” to the prevention of an act of terrorism, or to the apprehension of a person involved in terrorist activities, they are allowed to adjust their status.

T Visas

The “T” visa, was created to provide immigration protection to victims of a severe form of human trafficking.

The “U” non-immigrant status, or “U” visa, is designated for victims of certain crimes who have suffered mental or physical abuse because of the crime and who are willing to assist law enforcement and government officials in the investigation of the criminal activity.
