SAVE Fact Sheet - Information for SAVE Users: Afghan Arrival Categories, Documentation, and SAVE Responses
The Department of Homeland Security is leading and coordinating ongoing efforts across the federal government to support vulnerable Afghans, including those who worked alongside us in Afghanistan for the past two decades, as they safely resettle in the United States. These Afghan arrivals generally fall within one of four categories that are eligible for resettlement assistance, entitlement programs, and other benefits available to refugees admitted under section 207 of the Immigration and Nationality Act.
SAVE has developed a new Afghan Arrival Categories, Documentation, and SAVE Afghan Arrivals Fact Sheet (PDF, 429.01 KB) to serve as a stand-alone resource and an aid to train SAVE users regarding these four Afghan arrival categories.
Fact Sheet topics include:
- Operation Allies Welcome (OAW) Background;
- Eligibility for Federal Public Benefits and REAL ID Driver’s Licenses;
- Afghan Arrival Categories, Codes, and SAVE Responses;
- Immigration Documentation Commonly Used By Afghan Arrivals; and
- Other Resources.
The Fact Sheet is available under SAVE Resources and through the Resources page in the SAVE system.
