R Visas
(R1 Visa - Members of Religious Organizations)

The Immigration and Nationality Act states that the R1 visa category is available to a nonimmigrant religious worker who has been a member of a religious organization in the United States for the two years immediately preceding an R1 visa application and who seeks to enter the U.S. for a period not to exceed five years. The R1 nonimmigrant category permits religious workers to enter the U.S. in order to continue or develop a religious vocation.

The LL.M. Law Group understands that obtaining an R1 visa for a nonimmigrant religious worker to come to the United States can sometimes be difficult. Please read below to learn more about how the LL.M. Law Group can help you start working, and stop worrying.

The LL.M. Law Group can help obtain an R-1 visa for the following:

  • Religious organizations in the United States that wish to bring over members from overseas branches, affiliates, or similar entities to work in religious vocations such as liturgical workers, religious instructors, missionaries, and translators
  • Members of a religious group or community having a bona fide nonprofit, religious organization in the U.S.
  • Foreign nationals coming to the United States to work as the minister of a religious group or community

Please refer to the LL.M. Law Group's immigration consultation procedures to begin.

The LL.M. Law Group will work with you to arrive at an arrangement that is fair to all concerned.
