Investigations Division

U-Visa and T-Visa Certification Requests

The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is the federal component of US Department of Homeland Security (USDHS) with the responsibility to determine whether immigration benefits and immigration status should be granted to victims and/or witnesses of certain qualifying crimes.

 The Riverside Police Department (RPD) is responsible for investigating all requests for U-Visa and T-Visa certification.   RPD’s role in the process is only whether to certify the Form I-914 or I-918 Supplement B by determining whether the person requesting certification is the victim of a qualifying crime, evaluating their helpfulness, and/or any other pertinent circumstances related to the crime, follow-up investigation, or prosecution. These factors are considered in determining whether the Form I-918 Supplemental will be certified.

 A supervisor assigned to the Investigations Division will conduct a thorough review of the documents and supporting materials that are submitted as part of a request before a determination is made.  A letter will be sent to the requesting person within 90 days.

To apply for a U-Visa or T-Visa certification download the U-Visa request form, fill out completely, and print.  Mail the form and a copy of your photo identification to:
