Immigration Status for Taiwanese Minister

Immigration Status for Taiwanese Minister

Taiwan


Client: a Church in Ann Arbor, Michigan

Beneficiary’s Nationality: Taiwan

Case Type: I-360 Petition for an Alien to be Classified as a Special Immigrant

Location: Ann Arbor, Michigan


BACKGROUND: Our client, a bilingual church in Ann Arbor, wished to retain a capable and experienced minister on a long term basis. Because we handled this minister’s religious worker status, we were also retained to apply for an immigration status on behalf of this minister and his family.


Date of Application: May 6, 2005

Date of Approval: September 29, 2005


WE HELPED OUR CLIENT prove that—

  1. The minister had been a member of the denomination, a bona fide religious organization, for two years, and
  2. The minister had been carrying on religious work continuously for at least two years before the application, and
  3. The religious worker must be in the U.S. solely for the purpose of acting as a minister in a professional capacity at that organization’s request, and

Therefore, the minister should be granted an immigration status.


FOUR MONTHS LATER, our client’s case on behalf of its choice minister was approved. The grant of immigration status to the minister became a helpful base for later I-485 (Green Card or Permanent Resident Status) application.
