Parole Under Uniting for Ukraine
This announcement provides information about documentation and the SAVE verification process for individuals paroled into the United States under Uniting for Ukraine, which permits Ukrainian citizens and their immediate family members to be considered for parole on a case-by-case basis for up to two years.
Parolees under Uniting for Ukraine can obtain a copy of their electronic Form I-94, Arrival/Departure Record, from the U.S Customs and Border Protection website at i94.cbp.dhs.gov. This Form I-94 record will include a UHP class of admission (COA). Ukrainian Humanitarian Parolees may also have one or more of the following:
- Paper Form I-94 with a UHP COA;
- Foreign passport with parole stamp that includes a UHP COA; or
- Form I-766, Employment Authorization Document (EAD) with a C11 category, if they have applied for and received one.
Based upon information from the Form I-94 record or other documentation noted above, SAVE will provide an initial verification response of Parolee with a UHP COA. SAVE will provide the same response for Ukrainians paroled outside of the Uniting for Ukraine initiative, except the COA will instead be a general parole COA such as DT or PAR.
The initial response may also include employment authorization information if the parolee has an EAD. Additional verification may be required in limited circumstances, such as when the applicant information submitted by the user agency does not match federal immigration records.
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Uniting for Ukraine webpages provide information about eligibility and how to apply for Ukrainian Humanitarian Parole. A Fact Sheet: DHS Efforts to Assist Ukrainian Nationals, provides information about other legal pathways such as Temporary Protected Status, Asylum, the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program, and flexibilities to help people in extreme situations such as the invasion of Ukraine.
