According to USCIS, what are the humanitarian visas available today?

The USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) administers various humanitarian visa programs for individuals seeking refuge or protection in the United States. Some of the main humanitarian visas include:

U Visa (Visa for Victims of Crimes):

Intended for victims of crimes who have suffered substantial physical or mental abuse and cooperate with authorities in the investigation or prosecution of the crime.

T Visa (Visa for Victims of Human Trafficking):

Issued for victims of human trafficking who have been subjected to severe exploitation and are willing to cooperate with authorities in the investigation and criminal process.

S Visa (Informant Visa):

Available for individuals providing critical information related to criminal or terrorist activities and willing to cooperate with authorities.


Granted to individuals outside their countries of origin who cannot or do not want to return due to fear of persecution based on race, religion, nationality, social group, or political opinion.

Refugee Visa:

Issued for people outside the United States seeking refuge due to fear of persecution. The refugee process is coordinated with resettlement organizations in the U.S.

Temporary Protected Status (TPS):

Granted to citizens of countries designated by the U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security due to temporary conditions preventing the safe return of these citizens to their home country.

Parole Visa:

Granted to individuals who would otherwise be ineligible to enter the U.S. but have significant humanitarian reasons or public interest needs.

These humanitarian visas are designed to offer protection to individuals in specific and varied situations. The conditions and requirements for each visa can be complex, and it is advisable to seek legal guidance when initiating the application process. Additionally, it is important to check the latest information on the USCIS official website, as policies and regulations may change.
