  • Background of U visa processing

    I'm going to share some information on how u visa are processed.

    1.Generally, USCIS group their work as a product lines like marriage based visa, VAWA, U visa, T visa, etc... Each of them is given a priority and process is based on it. For Example, Marriage bases Visa has the highest priority compared to any other product lines. In Our case, U visa product lines has the least priority among all. So, obviously they utilise least USCIS resources to process U visa.

    2. When coming to U visa, the problem is not in USCIS but the problem is with in INA law. Only 10,000 visa can only be granted per year. When more than >10k/year U visa application started reaching USCIS, a backlog was created in issuing U visa. To solve this problem, USCIS used his discretionary power to issue deferred action for a eligible U visa applicant.In INA, under U visa, there is no specific time line for granting deferred action. So, USCIS is using it's least resources in granting Deferred action that makes huge backlog in granting DA.

    3. To solve this backlogs in granting DA, there is only 2 ways. 1. President can use his executive power or USCIS can use it's discretionary power in granting DA within the specific time line. 2. The INA U visa Bills must be amended in specifying time line. Currently, there 2 bills in the congress to amend it. But whether this bills would become a law or not is a huge story and it's purely depends on political environment. So, U visa applicants must have a huge patience after applying U visa.

    If you have any further queries, please let me know I'm ready to explain.
