Special Immigrant Non-Minister Religious Worker Program Extended

On September 28, 2012, President Obama signed S.3245 into law. The law provides for an extension of the authorization for the EB– 5 Regional Center Program, the Special Immigrant Non-minister Religious Worker Program, and the Conrad State 30 J–1 Visa Waiver Program for three years, until September 30, 2015. This extension means that the final date by which special immigrant non-minister religious workers must adjust status to permanent resident has now been extended by three years.
