If you are a foreign national that’s dedicated your life to religious work and have a calling in the U.S., you’re in the right place. R-1 Visas are for individuals and their immediate families who want to enter the country temporarily (up to 5 years) for religious reasons. To be eligible for this Visa, you must:
- Be a member of the legitimate religious denomination for at least two years preceding admission;
- Work as a minister or other religious vocation;
- Be sponsored and employed by a non-profit, religious organization of your denomination (or an affiliated organization) in the U.S.;
- Work a minimum of 20 hours/week.
Because of the complexity and level of detail associated with R-1 Visas, an attorney can ensure eligibility requirements are met for you and your family, and that your applications are completed accurately.
