Form I-601 Notice of Intent Stakeholder Engagement
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) invited stakeholders to participate in a engagement to discuss the Notice of Intent posted in the Federal Register on Friday, January 6, outlining a plan to streamline the process of filing provisional unlawful presence waiver applications. The notice of intent outlines a process that would allow certain individuals who are seeking permanent residence and are immediate relatives of U.S. citizens to apply for and be granted (if eligible) provisional waivers of inadmissibility before leaving the U.S. for consular processing of their immigrant visa applications. This process change would apply to individuals whose only ground of inadmissibility is unlawful presence.
During this session, USCIS provided an overview of the proposed process changes and address questions from stakeholders.
