New Immigration Processes for Cubans, Haitians, Nicaraguans and Venezuelans

The Department of Homeland Security announced on January 6, 2023, new immigration processes through which nationals of Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela may request to come to the U.S. in a safe and orderly way. Eligible beneficiaries must meet our requirements and have a supporter in the United States. Qualified applicants who are accepted will be able to travel by air to the U.S. and apply for work authorization.

Key Points to New Immigration Processes

  • Up to 30,000 Cuban, Haitian, Nicaraguan and Venezuelan nationals per month will be admitted to the United States on a temporary parole period for up to two years and will be eligible for work authorization.
  • Applicants will be considered on a case-by-case basis for urgent humanitarian reasons or a significant public benefit at the discretion of immigration officers and
    • must pass national security and public safety screenings
    • have a supporter in the United States
    • complete vaccinations
    • fulfill other public health requirements
  • Individuals who enter the United States, Mexico or Panama without authorization will generally be ineligible.
  • Individuals participating in this process must have a supporter in the United States who agrees to provide them with financial support for the duration of their parole in the United States.

What Qualifies As Financial Support?

To participate in the new immigration program for Cubans, Haitians, Nicaraguans and Venezuelans, individuals must have financial support from someone in the United States. Supporters must declare their ability to provide financial support and pass background checks. Individuals and organizational representatives must file Form I-134A. Which is the Online Request to be a Supporter and Declaration of Financial Support with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services for each beneficiary they seek to support, including minor children, at https://www.uscis.gov/CHNV.
