Response to Recommendations on Parole for Eligible U Visa Principal and Derivative Petitioners Residing Abroad [pdf]

“USCIS plans to implement a policy for principal U visa petitioners on the waiting list who reside abroad and any qualifying derivative family members who reside abroad to request parole to enter the United States while the principal U visa petitioner is on the waiting list. USCIS recognizes that the U visa provides lawful immigration status to a vulnerable population, and USCIS believes that this population will be better served through an established and streamlined process to request parole.”
