If you are a DACA recipient, you may be granted travel authorization if you are faced with an emergency. To travel aboard, you will need to have a valid emergency that has occurred in the last 30 days. Below you will find more information that will help you determine if you qualify for travel authorization, better known as advance parole.
If you would like to travel aboard to visit friends or to have a vacation, advance parole will not be granted. Travel will only be granted for a legitimate emergency.
A legitimate emergency can be to care for a sick or dying family member, travel for lifesaving medical treatments, or travel to support the wellbeing of a family member. These are not the only emergencies that may be granted advance parole, but they are some of the most common.
When an emergency arises, and you need to travel, you will need to show proof of such emergency to the USCIS. You will need to provide documentation of the emergency from the last 30 days.
To start the process of advance parole, you will need to call the USCIS to schedule an Info Pass Appointment. During your appointment, you will need to bring with you proof of the emergency and any paperwork that supports your reason for travel. If you are approved, you will move on to the next step in the process.
If you were approved for an in-person interview, you will need to show up on time at the chosen field office. You will be questioned by in US immigration officer, and again you will need to show documented proof of your need to travel. You also need to show airline booking proof to the destination you wish to travel.
While we can’t ensure that you will be granted travel authorization, our team of US immigration experts can provide you with guidance. If you are faced with a valid reason to travel outside the country, we would like to hear from you.
