The Biden administration has announced the expansion of its Venezuela Parole Program to three additional countries – Cuba, Haiti, and Nicaragua. On Jan. 5, 2023, the Department of Homeland Security announced an expansion of its new migration process for Venezuelan nationals. The expansion allows those nationals from Cuba, Haiti, and Nicaragua and their immediate family members to request advance authorization for travel and temporary parole for up to two years in the United States, including work authorization. There will be a 30,000 per month cap on the number of parolees from all four countries.
Parolees must have a supporter in the United States who will provide financial and other support, among other requirements.
If you or someone you know may benefit from the expansion of parole, or if you have questions, we encourage you to contact the experienced immigration attorneys at Lewis Kappes by calling (317) 639-1210 to schedule a consultation.
