U and T Visa Law Enforcement Resources

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has developed resources for Federal, state, local, tribal and territorial law enforcement officers concerning law enforcement certifications for the U and T nonimmigrant status, also known as the U and T visas.

U Visa Law Enforcement Resource Guide. This Guide provides law enforcement officials with information about U visa requirements, the law enforcement certification process, and answers to frequently asked questions from law enforcement agencies to support investigations and prosecutions involving qualified immigrant victims of crime.

U Visa Immigration Relief for Victims of Certain Crimes: An Overview for Law Enforcement.  United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and DHS's Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties have developed a brief, two-page overview of the U visa and law enforcement's role in the certification process.  This handout is intended to be a quick and convenient resource to address questions and concerns law enforcement might have about the U visa certification process. 

Additional information for law enforcement agencies about the U and T visas is available on the USCIS website and the USCIS Blue Campaign website.
