Visas for Victims of Sex Trafficking
T Visa.This visa is for foreigners who have been the subjects of severe trafficking, which is defined as “sex trafficking in which a commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, in which the person induced to perform such act has not attained 18 years of age” or “the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through=- the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery” and who agree to assist in prosecutions or are under the age of 18 and would suffer “extreme hardship involving unusual and severe harm upon removal.”
The T visa is for three years, and the individual may seek adjustment of status to that of a Lawful Permanent Resident if he/she has maintained status, been of good moral character, and complied with reasonable requests for assistance in prosecuting trafficking.
