I think I am eligible for a T-visa. Will I definitely get one if I apply?
The limit on the number of T-visas available nationally each year is 5,000.1 Usually, that limit is not reached; however, if the limit is reached, you could be denied a T-visa even if you satisfy all of the requirements. If you are otherwise qualified to receive a T-visa, but are denied one because of the limit, then you will be placed on a waiting list.2 For more information on how to apply for a T-visa, see How do I apply for a T-visa?
