Victims applying for T nonimmigrant status may submit a completed and signed T visa declaration as part of their application to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The form is one way of demonstrating to USCIS that: 1) the victim is or was a victim of a severe form of human trafficking, and 2) the victim complied with any reasonable requests from law enforcement in an investigation or prosecution of human trafficking.
A completed declaration is not a sponsorship or endorsement of a victim. A declaration does not give immigration status or provide immigration protection. A completed declaration also does not guarantee that USCIS will provide immigration status.
Preparing a T visa declaration request:
Send requests to the NYPD’s T declaration Office by email to Tvisadeclaration@nypd.org or mail to:
