What is a Psychological Evaluation for T Visa?

Some individuals who have been the victims of a severe form of human trafficking may be eligible for T Visas. When applying for a T Visa, psychological evaluations are used to assist in documenting the substantial physical or mental abuse as a result of having been the victim of trafficking. The T Visa psychological evaluation assesses the client’s mental state and the mental health consequences suffered due to being trafficked.

U Visa psychological evaluations include clinical interviews and psychological testing. The psychological report includes a description of the client’s impairments, symptoms, and diagnoses which may include Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and major depression.
