In continuation to our article on “Humanitarian Parole (I-131) For Afghan Nationals”, published on September 10, 2021 (Link: https://www.ahluwalialaw.com/humanitarian-parole-i-131-for-afghan-nationals/), and “Countries that Afghan Nationals Can Enter With or Without a Visa/E-Visa”, published on September 22, 2021 (Link: https://www.ahluwalialaw.com/countries-that-afghan-nationals-can-enter-with-or-without-a-visa-e-visa/), we would like to provide following updates to the Afghan community:
- As per USCIS processing for humanitarian parole applications typically takes several months, however, currently USCIS is willing to expedite the Humanitarian Parole for Afghan Nationals. Accordingly, the Afghan community can reach out to Ahluwalia Law Offices, P.C. and we will be more than happy to assist you in requesting USCIS to expedite your parole application.
- Afghan Parolee Vaccination Status Attestation: If you are an Afghan parolee who received the Afghan Parole Information sheet from Customs and Border Protection upon arrival, your parole is subject to certain medical conditions. If you arrived between August 25, 2021, and September 7, 2021, and chose not to go to the government-run locations where these vaccination services are provided, you are required to report compliance with these medical conditions. Within seven days of being granted parole, you are required to report compliance. The attestation must be completed by each individual parolee. You may satisfy this requirement by completing the certification at Afghan Parolee Vaccination Status | USCIS.
We will regularly update the blog as soon as any new information is available.
