The U visa classification was established under the Battered Immigrant Women Protection Act of 2000. Subsequently, nonimmigrant victims of certain criminal activity began applying for interim U visa relief, receiving deferred action status until regulations would be issued. These interim regulations were issued on September 17, 2007 and became effective on October 17, 2007.
