Here are essential details regarding the T-visa program:

  • T visa recipients have the authorization to work lawfully in the U.S. and could qualify for specific benefits and support services.
  • Relatives of T visa recipients might meet the requirements for derivative T visas.

Our dedicated team offers customized legal guidance and support to assist you in maneuvering through the intricate T visa application procedures. For guidance from a qualified immigration law attorney, do not hesitate to contact Yekrangi & Associates.
