Foreign nationals who are ministers or who work in religious occupations and who wish to come to the United States for temporary employment by a non-profit religious organization, can do so with an R-1 non-immigrant visa. The religious worker must have received an official job offer from a tax-exempt religious organization.
Religious workers include ministers of religion who are approved by a recognized denomination to conduct religious worship and perform other duties usually performed by members of the clergy, such as administering the sacraments. Religious vocation is described as a calling to religious life, evidenced by the demonstration of a lifelong commitment, such as the taking of vows. Examples of religious workers under the R-1 Visa classification are nuns, monks, and religious brothers and sisters.
Religious occupations are those that require a habitual engagement in an activity that relates to a traditional religious function. Examples include liturgical workers, religious instructors or cantors, catechists, workers in religious hospitals, missionaries, religious translators, and religious broadcasters.
