On December 23, 2008 the President signed into law the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act(WWTVPRA) of 2008. The Act makes several changes to nonimmigrant visa classification criteria, visa processing requirements, and the grounds for inadmissibility under INA section 212(a)(2)(H). The Act provides guidance for A-3, G-5 and B-1 issuance for applicants seeking to work for members of a particular mission or international organization if the Department determines that any officials of that mission or international organization have abused or exploited one or more such visa holders, and such treatment has been tolerated by the mission or international organization.
The changes under this provision of this law, relate to the legal rights of certain employment or education-based non-immigrants under Federal immigration, labor, and employment laws.
An applicant must read all relevant information regarding WWTVPRA of 2008 (PDF 253 KB) before applying for a nonimmigrant visa.
