R-1 Visa Requirements and Eligibility:
The R-1 Visa is available for religious workers who have been affiliated with a legitimate religious denomination for a minimum of two years. This US work visa category allows individuals to enter the United States to perform religious duties or work in a religious occupation.
Accompanying relatives of the main applicant (R-1 Visa holder) can apply for R-2 Visas, which grant them the opportunity to accompany the primary visa holder during their stay in the United States.
It is important to note that additional requirements may apply, depending on the specific circumstances and the religious organization involved. It is highly recommended to thoroughly review the information provided in our application manual and consult with the appropriate authorities or legal professionals to ensure compliance with all necessary requirements.
