On April 25, 2022, President Biden launched a new humanitarian parole program for Ukrainians fleeing their country due to the current crisis.

Insight

the humanitarian parole program, called Uniting for Ukraine, allows US citizens and entities to sponsor Ukrainian citizens who have been displaced due to the ongoing armed conflict in their country, provided they meet certain conditions. Ukrainian citizens must have resided in Ukraine on February 11, 2022. They must have a U.S.-based sponsor and meet all health requirements to enter the United States, including full COVID-19 vaccinations. Ukrainians may also be subject to security checks and other forms of screening.

Ukrainians will be considered on a case-by-case basis for parole. If they are granted parole, they will be allowed to stay in the United States for two years and they may also be eligible for work authorization.

Look forward

The Uniting for Ukraine program is designed to assist Ukrainians seeking refuge in the United States who do not have or are not eligible for a visa to enter the United States. Additional program information is available from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. (USCIS) website.
