R1 Visa General Information: The United States government issues visas to individuals who are members of legitimate religious organizations so they can live and work legally in the United States for a specific period of time. These visas are called R1 Religious Worker Visas. R1 Visas are made available to members of the clergy and also to key employees of religious organizations. The process of completing and submitting a request for an R-1 Visa can be both costly and confusing. The R-1 Religious Worker Visa Immigration Package makes the application process easy to understand. This is a step-by-step guide to help you file your R1 Visa application as efficiently and quickly as possible.

R1 Visa Eligibility Requirements: R1 Visas can be obtained if the applicant has been a member of a legitimate religious denomination for at least 2 years. R-2 Visas can be obtained for accompanying relatives of the main applicant (R-1 Visa holder). Other requirements may apply and it is recommended to review the information in the application manual before applying.
