Visas for Religious Workers

Religious workers can be granted entry to the United States on a special immigrant visa. The EB-4 fourth preference visa is available to foreign nationals who have a religious occupation. A person who applies for an EB-4 visa must meet certain conditions in order to qualify under the specific definition of a religious worker as defined by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS). An EB-4 visa allows a religious worker to be issued a green card for permanent residency.

EB-4 Eligibility

A person who petitions for an EB-4 visa must show a calling to religious life through his or her occupation. A religious worker must be working with a specific denomination and must have been serving the same denomination in some kind of official capacity for the past 2 years. Some examples of occupations that qualify as religious workers are:

  • Minister or Pastor
  • Nun
  • Monk
  • Other members of the clergy

How an Attorney Can Help

When applying for an EB-4 visa for entry into the United States, it is important to be as clear as possible in your application regarding your reason for wanting to immigrate, your job, and the kind of work you plan to do when you arrive. An attorney can help to ensure that you fill out your petition clearly and completely to maximize your chance of being approved for EB-4 status.
