Non-minister religious worker visa program to sunset

Many religious workers and their families in Florida may be concerned about planned changes to a special immigrant visa program, especially if they are not ministers.

While there is no annual cap on the number of ministers who are able to make use of the program during each year, there has been a cap of 5,000 visas each year issued for religious workers who are not ministers.
