DHS makes changes to T Visa for victims of human trafficking

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recently announced that it will make changes to the regulations that outline requirements and procedures for applicants seeking T nonimmigrant status (T visa). The T visa was created for and provides immigration protection to victims of human trafficking, and allows eligible victims to remain in the United States to assist in an investigation or prosecution of human trafficking.

After 14 years of running the T visa program, DHS is expounding upon the requirements of eligibility and making changes required by law. The public can provide opinions regarding these updates but must do so by February 17, 2017 by visiting the Federal Register.
