US Department of Homeland Security announces humanitarian parole sponsorship program for Ukraine
As of 25 April 2022, the United States (US) Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is implementing “Uniting for Ukraine,” an accelerated sponsorship-based humanitarian parole program that will allow participating Ukrainians to travel to and temporarily remain in the US for up to two years. US-based sponsors who agree to provide financial support for Ukrainian citizens and their immediate family members will be able to initiate a process that will ultimately allow these sponsored beneficiaries to seek advance authorization to travel to the US and request parole at a US port-of-entry.
