USCIS recently announced a new process for Venezuelan nationals outside of the United States, and their immediate family members to come to the U.S. with Humanitarian parole. This program will be similar to the Uniting for Ukraine program, and is going to provide a safe and orderly way for nationals of Venezuela without U.S. visas to come to the United States legally for urgent humanitarian reasons and significant public benefit, as well as have the ability to be paroled for up to two years. In order to qualify, Venezuelans will have to be fully financially supported by a United States sponsor with legal status in the nation meaning the sponsor can be a U.S. Citizen, Green Card holder, or holder of a non-immigrant visa.
The U.S.-based supporter must submit a Form I-134, Declaration of Financial Support, to USCIS as the first stage in the procedure for each Venezuelan national or immediate family member they wish to support, including minor children. The United States government will then verify the supporter’s financial capability by reviewing the documentation they supplied along with their I-134 petition.The revised Form I-134 firmly clarifies that the sponsor is required to completely pay for the Venezuelan beneficiaries’ lodging, food, transportation costs to the United States, medical care, English language classes, and any other assistance in regards to establishing in the country.
