Religious workers from all over the world are called to the United States every year to fulfill their faith’s mission, but the complexity  and ever changing landscape of U.S. immigration law can make the journey difficult without proper guidance. This is where Religious Immigration Services can help.

Established in 1988 as part of the Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc., Religious Immigration Services is one of the few groups in the United States specializing in religious immigration law. These experienced legal professionals work closely with religious organizations who wish to bring a religious worker to the U.S.

Religious Immigration Services is currently accepting new cases. Please contact us at RIS@cliniclegal.org or 301.565.4832 to learn more.

Update on Non-Minister Sunset Provision

On Friday February 15, 2019 President Trump signed the “Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2019” (H.J. Res. 31) into law, funding the federal government through September 30, 2019. The Act also extends several immigration programs.  Division H, Sec. 102 of the Act amends the sunset date of the Non-Minister Permanent Residence Program under Sec. 101(a)(27)(C)(ii)(II) and (III) of the Immigration and Nationality Act until September 30, 2019.  Thus, the Non-Minister Permanent Residence Program is extended until September 30, 2019.
