What is a T-Visa?

In October 2000, Congress created the T visa under the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act. T visas are similar to U visas in that they help victims of crimes gain non-immigrant status in the United States. T visas, however, are specifically targeted at victims of human trafficking. The T visa provides protection and assistance for victims by allowing them to remain in the U.S. and receive benefits not afforded to most visa recipients. Furthermore, the creation of the T visa has provided additional resources for law enforcement officials in their investigations and prosecution of human trafficking crimes.
