For Certain Afghan Nationals Applications for Re-Parole and Work Authorization Renewals Are Fee-Exempt

Last week, USCIS announced that starting June 9th till July 31, 2024, the Department of Homeland Security will allow for a two-year extension of the original parole period for Afghan parolees who have applied for asylum of LPR status and are eligible for the fee exemption through these dates.

The request for fee-exempt re-parole for Afghan nationals will be available online and via paper filing as well. The new Re-Parole Process for Certain Afghans webpage provides information on the process to apply for re-parole.

If you applied for re-parole through the I-131 form before June 8, 2023, and are an Afghan national, you can submit a new request using the process to obtain the fee exemption.
