Introduction


The "T visa" protects immigrants who are trafficking victims by making it safer for them to report the crime. A trafficking victim is someone who was tricked or forced to work like a slave or as a sex worker. Qualified applicants can get a work permit and stay in the U.S. for 4 years (after 3 years, they can apply for permanent residency).
