The couple, who are engaged, spent a week in a Las Vegas jail earlier this year after being falsely accused by their employer of plotting acts of terrorism.
The couple were working in the U.S. under the Walsh Visa program.
A motion on their behalf seeking U visas was filed in court last week. A U visa is provided to anyone who is a victim of a crime and a potential witness.
A decision on the application is expected before the end of October.
