U.S. Embassy in Havana warns Cubans enrolled in the new Parole on matters relating to the application. The new parole initiative to stop the wave of illegal migration of Cubans, Nicaraguans and Haitians to the United States has been in place for several months. According to data provided by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Undersecretary Brian A. Nichols, as of March, nearly 10,000 Cubans had entered the United States thanks to new parole.
This not-insignificant number does not include all Cubans who applied for parole during the period, but only those who obtained it together with their travel permit, since a huge number of them are still waiting to get an answer on their case. This situation has raised doubts among applicants and sponsors as to whether after a certain period, the application should be made again.
Some Clarifications on the Application for the New Parole
Due to the desperation of the applicants when they do not receive answers about their case, Miami-based attorneys suggested sponsors and sponsored persons make their applications as soon as possible since the cases are piling up and the process is not as agile as it was in the beginning. According to information obtained by attorney Mayron D. Gallardo, the number of cases awaiting travel permits is around 200,000.
It is useful to remind you that the U.S. Embassy in Cuba regularly publishes information of interest related to the new humanitarian parole, which -they affirm- has become one of the safest ways to migrate to the United States.
Earlier the diplomatic office alerted sponsors of Cubans in the United States that they should use Form 1-134A, “Online Application to Become a Supporting Person and Declaration of Financial Support,” to apply. The authorities recommended that the petition should not be resubmitted if the previous petition has not yet reached the 90-day deadline for processing a case.
For Further Information on Applying for the New Parole
Should the information to be provided change for any reason after the application, or should any erroneous information appear in the application, the information should not be duplicated, as this would only hinder the process. In these cases, the correct thing to do is to send a message through your USCIS online account, in which you report what happened so that the data can be rectified or a new corrected form can be admitted.
If you have any general questions about this process you may contact the USCIS Contact Center at 800-375-5283 (TTY 800-767-1833) or +1-212-620-3418 for calls outside the United States.
