On the 18th of May, 2023, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released a publication wherein they declared the revision of the procedural evaluation for individuals hailing from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Venezuela.
It is important to know that as of May 17, 2023, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will be implementing an update to the verification process for individuals of Cuban, Haitian, Nicaraguan, and Venezuelan descent. Pursuant to this update, the United States government shall furnish a maximum of thirty thousand preliminary entry permits on a monthly basis for each individual case, for the purpose of obtaining parole. The present update is being executed in light of the considerable interest in the aforementioned immigration procedures and endeavors to guarantee a more streamlined evaluation.
Please be advised that USCIS is currently revising its review process in light of the substantial volume of I-134A, Online Request to be a Supporter and Declaration of Financial Support, applications that have surpassed the monthly travel permit limit of 30,000. The objective of the aforementioned update is to ensure that all recipients of the I-134A form are afforded an equitable and significant chance to progress and obtain a provisional entry permit. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services endeavors to proficiently administer the substantial request for said immigration procedures, while ensuring parity of opportunity for all petitioners.
Following the implementation of the new review process on May 17, USCIS shall, without regard to the submission date, randomly select about fifty percent of the total monthly number of pending I-134A applications to assess their eligibility for approval. The processing of the remaining half of the monthly quota of I-134A applications shall be conducted in accordance with the “first come, first served” principle, with priority given to earlier applications.
It is impermissible for prospective sponsors to furnish repetitive I-134A forms for a single beneficiary. In the event that an I-134A form is presently under review between a prospective sponsor and a beneficiary, it is imperative to note that any additional forms that are identical in nature will not be deemed admissible. In the event that an I-134A form has not been approved, but the sponsor maintains that it satisfies the procedural prerequisites, it is permissible to submit a fresh I-134A form accompanied by supplementary substantiation.
Please be advised that due to the revised review procedure, the duration of processing may fluctuate. Prospective sponsors may monitor the status of their submitted I-134A form through their USCIS online account or review the most recent status on Case Status Online. Notwithstanding, the USCIS contact center refrains from furnishing supplementary details concerning the status of a case.
