On January 5, 2023, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced a new parole process for Cubans, Haitians, and Nicaraguans to enter the U.S. with temporary lawful status. This program builds on the established parole processes already in place for Venezuelans and Ukrainians.
Similar to the process for Venezuelans and Ukrainians, nationals from Cuba, Haiti, and Nicaragua who are fleeing humanitarian crises in their home countries may now engage in his process to obtain temporary lawful status in the U.S. To be eligible to participate, individuals must have a supporter in the U.S. willing and able to receive and support the individual, pass a security screening, and meet other basic eligibility criteria. More detailed information on eligibility criteria and how to apply can be found on the USCIS webpage, Processes for Cubans, Haitians, Nicaraguans, and Venezuelans.
Along with this announcement expanding this parole program, DHS also announced that it was removing the numerical cap of 24,000 on the number of Venezuelans allowed to come to the U.S. through this process.
In addition, USCIS announced that potential supporters must now file a new form, the I-134A, Online Request to be a Supporter and Declaration of Financial Support. Potential supporters who have already filed an I-134 prior to January 6, 2023, do not need to submit a Form I-134A at this time.
