USCIS UPDATES REVIEW PROCESSES FOR CUBANS, HAITIANS, NICARAGUANS, & VENEZUELANS


As of May 17, 2023, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) began the process of granting advance travel authorization for up to 30,000 noncitizens each month to come to the United States to seek parole on a case-by-case basis under the processes for Cubans, Haitians, Nicaraguans, and Venezuelans. Due to the number of supporters who have already submitted Form I-134A, Online Request to be a Supporter and Declaration of Financial Support drastically superseding the 30,000 monthly travel authorizations available, USCIS decided to update this process. According to the new process, USCIS will randomly select about half of the monthly total, regardless of the filing date, from the entire pending workload of Form I-134A to determine whether the case can be confirmed. They will review the other half based on when the case was submitted under a method that prioritizes the oldest Forms I-134A for review. There is no need to submit a duplicate Form I-134A for the same beneficiary. USCIS will not accept a duplicate Form I-134A if a previously submitted Form I-134A between the same potential supporter and beneficiary is pending. If USCIS does not confirm a Form I-134A but a supporter believes they meet the requirements to be a supporter under the process, they may file a new Form I-134A and submit additional information as evidence. Please note: Processing times will vary. Potential supporters may monitor the status of a Form I-134A they filed in their USCIS online account or check the most recent status in Case Status Online.
