On March 20, 2009, President Obama signed into law HR 1127, a bill to extend certain immigration programs.
Section 1 extends the “SR” nonminister special immigrant religious worker visa classification by amending INA 101(a)(27)(C)(ii)(II) and (III)to authorize “SR” status for an eligible alien who “seeks to enter the United States before September 30, 2009.” “SR” visas may be issued until close of business on September 29, 2009. No “SR” visa may be issued with a validity that extends beyond September 29, 2009. Visit the Immigrant Visas - Employment webpage.
