Religious Visa Criteria Revised

World Journal, news report, Posted: Nov 27, 2008



NEW YORK U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that they have finished revising the religious (RI) visa application criteria . Its hoped this will curb RI visa fraud, which is on the rise, reports The World Journal. As a result, USCIS stopped issuing those visas. Before the new regulation no official document was required to apply for RI visas. Now religious organizations hiring foreign religious workers must turn in an I-129 form with the application, which is similar to the application process of H1B work visas. New RI visas are effective for only 30 months rather than three years before the change.
