Religious Worker Status for a Chinese Minister

 Religious Worker Status Approved for a Chinese Minister

China


Client: A Church

Location: Cleveland Ohio

Beneficiary’s Nationality: Chinese


BACKGROUND: A church in Cleveland wishes to hire a choice religious worker to expand its reach into Chinese immigrant community and strengthen its existing community building efforts.


Date of Application: March 25, 2014

Date of On-Site Review: Early October, 2014

Date of Reply for Request for Evidence: July 25, 2014

Date of Approval: October 15, 2014


WE HELPED OUR CLIENT prove that—

  1. The minister had been a member of the denomination for two years, and
  2. The church or religious organization is a bona fide religious organization,
  3. The church or religious organization has sufficient resource to compensate the religious workers’ service.

CHALLENGE: Some cases are hard due to difficult in argument crafting, some are, due to the tedium of evidence gathering. Religious worker status belongs to the later kind. Though more straightforward than other complicated cases, quality of evidence determines the strength of our argument. Given recent news of fraudulent applications, reviewing officers may be somewhat more skeptical than we may have expected.

Therefore, careful documentation saved this case because the reviewer doubted the existence of the church, that the minister used to serve. Our timely reply to show that religious meeting actually took place at the claimed location saved the case.


AFTER ONE REQUEST OF EVIDENCE, IN TWO AND HALF A MONTH, our client’s case was approved.
