The United States government currently grants travel authorization to up to 30,000 people each month as part of the procedures for Cubans, Haitians, Nicaraguans, and Venezuelans to apply for temporary residence permits on a case-by-case basis in the United States Can come Due to the overwhelming interest in these processes, USCIS has updated the review process effective May 17, 2023.
We have updated this process because the number of support persons filing Form I-134A, the Online Application to Become a Support Person, and the Declaration of Financial Assistance is significantly higher than the 30,000 travel authorizations available monthly. This is to maintain a valuable and equal opportunity for all beneficiaries of Form I-134A to advance in the process and apply for advance travel authorization.
Under the new review process effective May 17, USCIS will randomly select approximately half of the monthly total of all pending Form I-134A, regardless of filing date, to determine whether a case can be confirmed. Is. The other half of the monthly total of Form I-134A will be reviewed in order of receipt based on the filing date of the case, with the oldest Form I-134A given priority for review.
Potential Support Individuals should not file a duplicate Form I-134A for the same beneficiary. We will not accept a duplicate copy of Form I-134A as long as there is a pending Form I-134A already filed between the same potential support person and the beneficiary. If USCIS does not approve Form I-134A, and a support person believes they meet the requirements to be a support person under this process, that person may file a new Form I-134A. and may submit additional information as evidence.
Under this updated review process, processing times will vary. Potentially assisted individuals can monitor the status of the Form I-134A they filed online in their USCIS account or check the latest status at Case Status Online. The USCIS Contact Center cannot provide additional information regarding the status of your case.
