United States | Eligible Ukrainians Can Extend Stay Through Re-Parole

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced Tuesday that certain Ukrainians and their immediate family members can apply for re-parole to extend their stay in the United States.

Key Points:

Additional Information: Re-parole is part of the Uniting for Ukraine humanitarian program that launched April 25, 2022. USCIS has stated that applications will be considered “on a discretionary, case-by-case basis for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit.” The agency recommends filing online versus physically mailing the forms to expedite the process and minimize error. If applicants do not have a current online account, they can create one here.

BAL Analysis: In announcing the re-parole program, USCIS stated that it recognizes the “extraordinary circumstances in Ukraine that supported the prior exercise of discretionary parole authority continue to exist.” BAL will continue to follow the administration’s response to the crisis in Ukraine and provide updates as information becomes available.
