T Visa in New Jersey
Are you a victim of human trafficking?
Individuals who are victims of serious human trafficking can apply for a T visa, which is a product of the Trafficking and Violence Protection Act of 2000. The T visa can be sought by nonimmigrants in the United States who seek an adjustment after either of the following qualifications has been met:
- Three years of continuous presence in the United States
- Continuous period during an investigation of trafficking
- Continuous presence during the prosecution of the acts of trafficking
Nonimmigrant individuals with a T visa will also need a certification from the Attorney General that proves that the investigation or prosecution has been finalized.
The purpose of the T visa for victims of severe human trafficking would be to obtain protection in the United States for up to four years if the return to their home would put them in extreme hardship.
Severe trafficking includes any of the following sources for involuntary servitude or sex trafficking:
- Use of force
