Q: What prevents any Foreign National from claiming U Visa status by saying they were a victim of a crime?

A: A Petition for U Nonimmigrant Status must also contain certification of the helpfulness of the victim from a certifying agency. That means the victim must provide a U Nonimmigrant Status Certification (Form I-918, Supplement B), from a U.S. Law Enforcement agency that demonstrates the petitioner was helpful.
