USCIS Accepts the Ombudsman's Recommendation to Adopt Parole Policy for U Visa Petitioners and Family Members


USCIS has agreed with the Ombudsman’s recommendation to implement a parole policy for U visa petitioners and qualifying family members who live abroad. The U visa – available to individuals who have suffered substantial physical or mental abuse as a result of a qualifying crime and who meet certain other criteria – are capped at 10,000 per fiscal year.
