We created this graphic to outline the basic eligibility requirements for a U visa. I’m constantly amazed at how unknown this program seems to be. If you or your family member has been the victim of a list of crimes and cooperated with the police or prosecution, you or they might be eligible for a visa that can eventually lead to permanent residence. This is even for individuals who have no status at all right now. It is an incredibly helpful tool for law enforcement, because it encourages people to cooperate with the police to report crimes and testify against their attackers.
