Victim of Sexual or Labor Trafficking

 
 


We are the critical lifeline for victims of human trafficking who seek protection and assistance in the United States. 

Have you heard about the T-Visa, or T-Nonimmigrant Status? It’s a lifeline for victims of human trafficking who are seeking protection and assistance in the United States. This specialized visa not only allows eligible individuals to stay in the country for a specific period but also grants them access to vital services and resources for recovery and rehabilitation. And here’s the best part: it even offers the potential for gaining lawful permanent residence down the road.

Enacted as part of the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act of 2000, the T-Visa was created to combat human trafficking and provide crucial support to survivors. It’s an incredible initiative that offers a way to safety and stability.
