U.S. entitles Ukrainians admitted on humanitarian grounds to apply for re-parole for another 2 years

MOSCOW. Feb 28 (Interfax) - The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has decided to entitle Ukrainian citizens whose stay in the U.S. territory on humanitarian grounds would normally expire this year to reapply for having their parole status extended for another two years, Ukrainian Ambassador to the U.S. Oksana Markarova said.

"Both Ukrainians who have arrived in the U.S. under the Uniting for Ukraine (U4U) program and citizens who were granted humanitarian parole status at U.S. ports of entry between February 11 and April 25, 2022, before this program was launched, have been entitled to reapply for their humanitarian parole status," Ukrainian media quoted Markarova as saying on her social account.

The essential information on the terms and the procedure under which Ukrainian citizens can reapply for having their humanitarian parole status extended is available on the official website of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service, she said.
