OI 223a.6 Applicant whose presence in the United States is not lawful.
An application by an alien whose presence in the United States is not lawful may be denied only if prior to decision an order to show cause has been issued or exclusion proceedings have been instituted.
The refugee travel document shall be issued on Form I-571. The status which may be accorded the alien upon his return to the United States shall be noted in the block provided for that purpose on Page 4 by typing, as appropriate: PAROLE, CONDITIONAL ENTRANT, REFUGEE, ASYLEE, or LAWFUL PERMANENT RESIDENT. The applicant who is a "PAROLEE" shall have the word parolee typed in this block, except that the document of an alien whose deportation has been withheld under section
(h) shall also be endorsed PAROLEE. If the applicant who is to be paroled has not been granted indefinite parole or indefinite voluntary departure, place an asterisk before and after the word PAROLEE so that upon return to the United States he will paroled for a period of 1 year.
The applicant's photograph, after being glued to the refugee travel document, shall be stamped "IMMIGRATION & NATURALIZATION SERVICE" with the maceration die so the stamp is partly on the photograph and partly on the document.
In the case of an applicant who is a lawful permanent resident of the United States, the instructions in OI 223 shall be applied to the extent appropriate with respect to section 247, any possible grounds of inadmissibility, and possible grounds of Residents of the U.S. Planing to Travel to the USSR. In addition, a copy shall be made of the first page of the Social approved application and sent to the Social Security Administration in the envelop containing duplicate Forms I-131.
If the applicant (other than a lawful permanent resident or conditional entrant) has not been granted parole, voluntary departure or a stay of deportation, he shall be accorded the appropriate one of those statuses, in increments of one year with permission to engage in employment, when the application is approved.
General. Before a refugee travel document is delivered to an applicant by mail or personal delivery, his/her signature on Form I-570 and the photographs submitted with the application shall be compared with any signature and photographs contained in his/her file.
Abroad. When a refugee travel document is to be delivered abroad, it shall be forwarded to a Service office abroad (see
) if one is located where delivery is to be made; other wise, it shall be forwarded to a United States embassy or consulate. When the applicant requests delivery in the Netherlands, the refugee travel document shall not be forwarded to the Embassy at the Haque but shall be forwarded to the Consulate General at Amsterdam or Rotterdam, as appropriate. The refugee travel document shall be accompanied by Form G-94. This document shall be forwarded abroad by registered mail.
