Humanitarian Parole Process for Ukrainians

By May 18, 2022September 22nd, 2022No Comments

USCIS has announced a new process specifically for Ukrainians to apply for humanitarian parole into the U.S. for an initial period of two years. In order to qualify, the applicant must meet the following qualifications:

  • must have resided in Ukraine immediately before the Russian invasion (through Feb 11, 2022)
  • must have been displaced as a result of the Russian invasion
  • must be Ukrainian and holding a Ukrainian passport; only exception is if applicant is immediate family member of Ukrainian who holds Ukrainian passport
  • Must have qualified supporter in the U.S. who is able to show ability to support the parolee

If granted parole, the applicant will be given travel authorization via email. Upon entry, the parolee will be qualified for employment authorization in the U.S.

Humanitarian parole is NOT available for Ukrainians living in the U.S; they may apply for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) through USCIS.
