Applying for T nonimmigrant status

A person who has been trafficked is usually poor and unemployed, and trafficking is a form of slavery. People who are trying to come to Florida who are victims of human trafficking can seek help to remain in the country. In 2000, Congress passed the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act along with the "T" nonimmigrant status.

There are several criteria for T visa eligibility. A person must be a trafficking victim and in the United States or a port of entry, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Island or American Samoa because of trafficking. The person must cooperate with reasonable requests of assistance from law enforcement regarding the trafficking. If the person is younger than 18 or cannot cooperate because of psychological or physical trauma, this is also acceptable. The person must show that removal from the country would result in extreme hardship and must be admissible to the country. If the person is not admissible, it is possible to apply for a waiver.
