New Jersey S Visa Lawyer
Visas Available for Witnesses and Informants
There are certain parties that can provide critical information to the
U.S. authorities regarding criminal cases, including vital information
about terrorist organizations. These witnesses and informants must be
able to enter the country legally. Those who are willing to supply information
about criminal enterprises operating within the U.S. borders, or impacting
U.S. citizens and their security abroad may be eligible for an S Visa.
The process of gaining this type of
temporary visa can be complex, and requires extensive documentation for approval. Make
sure you hire a
New Jersey immigration lawyer for the knowledgeable legal counsel you need.
Getting Approval for an S Visa to Enter the United States
The U.S. Secretary of State and the Attorney General must determine that
you are in possession of information of value to the authorities, and
have determined that the individual is willing to supply this information
to a federal law enforcement agency, or to testify in federal court, and
that the informant or witness has been or was in danger through giving
this information to the U.S. authorities. The types of immigration cases
that could allow an S Visa to be issued include cases involving terrorism,
international criminal activities and enterprises.
The spouses and unmarried sons and daughters of witnesses or informants
may also be eligible for legal entry to the U.S. under an S-7 Visa. If
you have information regarding any criminal matter of interest to the
federal authorities, and are coming to the United States on a temporary
basis to provide testimony or other evidence, your application will be
based upon a specific law enforcement agency (LEA) that is requesting
your presence in the U.S.

All of these matters must be carefully managed, as the witness or informant's
information could be crucial to the Department of Homeland Security, the
FBI or other federal agency. Once the immigrant has come to the U.S.,
it is often possible to seek permanent status in the country, as returning
to the home country could lead to serious consequences, including death.
