The U Visa for Victims of Crime

If you are an immigrant who has been the victim of a crime within the United States, you may be eligible to apply for a U Visa.

 

The U Visa was originally conceptualized to help immigrants who were also victims of domestic violence. Many of these immigrants not living in lawful status were afraid to come forth and assist police for fear of deportation. The U Visa counteracts this trend by providing lawful status to victims of crime so that they will be incentivized to report crime and assist local law enforcement.
