USCIS Announces Automatic Extension for Certain Ukrainian Parolees
Tags : I-9/E-Verify Compliance
Certain Ukrainian nationals who entered the United States prior to April 25, 2022 could be eligible for an extension of parole and work authorization.
USCIS recently announced that certain Ukrainian nationals who entered the United States at a port of entry between February 24, 2022 and April 25, 2022 could be eligible for a one-year extension of their parole. DHS will automatically review these cases for eligibility, and if eligible, will update the electronic Form I-94 (available online, here) and will notify USCIS of the updated parole date. USCIS will then send a Form I-797 notice to effected individuals that can be paired with their Employment Authorization Document, Form I-766 (EAD) showing category code C-11. This document combination will then serve as proof of work authorization and identity for a year after the expiration date on the EAD.
It is important to note that normally, EADs showing category code C-11 cannot be extended. However, in this circumstance, USCIS will allow it because the underlying reason for the EAD (the parole) is being extended automatically.
