Q: Can a foreign national petition for U Nonimmigrant Status from outside the United States?

A: Yes, USCIS has determined that the legal framework for U Nonimmigrant Status does permit foreign national victims of criminal activity to petition for such status inside and outside the United States.

If not admissible to enter the United States as a foreign national, an applicant for a U visa must obtain a waiver of inadmissibility through submission of a Form I-192, Application for Advance Permission to Enter as a Nonimmigrant. This allows for the continuation of the U Nonimmigrant visa process.
