Manhattan Religious Visa Lawyer

R Visas For Religious Workers

The category of R visas is for permanent and temporary immigrants in the religious profession. The process is complex and detailed, but working with an experienced immigration lawyer can help to make sure the process is as smooth and efficient as possible.

At the law firm of J. Bruce Weinman, Esq., we assist workers and employers through the process of applying for religious visas. From our Manhattan, New York, office, we represent clients locally and across the globe. Our attorney, Bruce Weinman, has handled a wide range of immigration matters for more than 30 years. He brings experience, knowledge and skill to every client he represents.

With our firm, clients receive personal attention and representation focused on meeting their needs and goals. We evaluate your situation and advise you on your best options for entering and staying in the U.S. legally.

For R-1 temporary visas, there are requirements that both the individual and the religious organization must meet. Individual religious workers must:

  • Be a member of a religious group with an organization or affiliation in the U.S.
  • Have been a member for two years prior to applying for an R-1 visa
  • Be entering the U.S. for the sole purpose of being a minister or full-time employment in a religious job

The requirements for the religious organization involve making sure it is a legitimate, functioning organization.

The application process for religious visas differs from other types of employment-based visas. Our law firm provides step-by-step guidance through the process and solid legal advice. We also assist people with I-360 permanent applications.
