The U Visa process can be time-consuming, and some people want to see their families again or visit their home country as soon as possible.

However, if you are in the middle of a process, we recommend not leave the United States unless it is an emergency.

At Quiroga Law Office, PLLC, we will tell you what you need to know about it.

  1. Why do you need to stay in the United States during the process?

First, if you are applying to obtain a residence, you must know that, for the authorities, it is important to demonstrate your commitment when you stay in the country.

Indeed, for that, you must remain in the territory during the request.

Once you are a beneficiary of the U Visa and have finished with all the procedures, you will be able to leave the United States without a problem.

Exceptions can be made in the event of illness of a close relative or your own.

But these are not given regularly.

Once you obtain the visa, how often is it advisable to leave the United States?

When you have your U visa on hand, you should avoid leaving the country frequently anyway.

Doing it as soon as you receive it may be frowned upon by immigration authorities.

The visa is not a guarantee of immunity in the country.

If you give sufficient reasons, the authorities may consider you as inadmissible and not let you in again.
