Updated Review Process for Cubans, Haitians, Nicaraguans, and Venezuelans Set by USCIS

Effective on May 17, 2023, the USCIS updated their review process to grant and advance travel authorization each month to 30,000 noncitizens to come to the United States to seek parole on a case-by-case basis under the processes for Haitians, Nicaraguans, Cubans, and Venezuelans. Due to the number of supporters who have submitted Form I-134A, USCIS will be updating their review process and Online Request to be a Supporter and Declaration of Financial Support, exceeding more than the 30,000 monthly travel authorizations available.

USCIS will arbitrarily select nearly half of the monthly total, despite the filing date, from the entire pending workload of Form I-134A to evaluate whether the case can be confirmed. To ensure the old Forms I-134A that were submitted are reviewed first, they will use the first-in, first-out method which will prioritize the oldest forms. If a supporter sees that they meet the requirements to be a supporter under the process, and the USCIS still hasn't confirmed a Form I-134A has been received, additional information may be submitted as evidence, and a new Form I-134A may be filed. Supporters are encouraged to check the most recent status in Case Status Online and to monitor the status of the Form I-134A they submitted to their USCIS online account.
