Eligibility Requirements for Obtaining a U Visa

DiSisto Law, P.C. can help you complete aspects that will make the process faster and less complicated. For example, a Form I-918, Supplemental B is a form that testifies to the fact that you have been helpful in an investigation. You must be petitioning USCIS for a U Visa and the form must be completed by an appropriate law enforcement agency.

There are various eligibility requirements, such as if you are:

  • The victim of a qualifying criminal activity
  • Suffering significant physical or mental abuse due to the criminal activity
  • In possession of information regarding the criminal activity
  • Successfully assisting law enforcement in the investigation and prosecution of the crime
  • Involved in a crime that occurred in the United States or violated U.S. laws
  • Admissible to the United States

If you are not admissible to the U.S. then you can apply for a waiver on Form I-192, Application for Advance Permission to Enter as a Nonimmigrant.
