USCIS Announces End of Parole Program in Moscow
Update

Released July 12, 2011 

WASHINGTON—U. S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) today announced it will no longer offer parole to Lautenberg category members who are denied refugee status in Moscow.  Individuals who have been offered parole by USCIS in Moscow must make plans to arrive in the United States by Sept. 30, 2011.

A provision of the Lautenberg Amendment to the Foreign Operations Appropriations Act allows certain individuals who are paroled into the United States after being denied refugee status to adjust to lawful permanent resident status after being physically present in the United States for one year. Within the Moscow program, this provision is limited to only those refugee applicants from countries that made up the former Soviet Union who meet the Lautenberg criteria. 

Congress has not extended this Lautenberg Amendment provision, which expires after Sept. 30, 2011.

Detailed information on this announcement is available in these accompanying questions and answers.

For more information on USCIS and its programs, please visit www.uscis.gov or follow us on Twitter (@uscis), YouTube ( /uscis) and the USCIS blog The Beacon.
