Final Rule: Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver Process - Wednesday, January 2, 2013 @ 3:00 p.m. (Eastern)
"U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and the Department of State invite you to participate in a stakeholder teleconference to discuss the final rule posted in the Federal Register today, establishing a new process for certain individuals to apply for provisional unlawful presence waivers within the United States. The teleconference will provide an overview of the provisional unlawful presence waiver process and eligibility criteria. Following the overview, officials will respond to questions related to procedural and operational matters.
This process change allows certain immediate relatives of U.S. citizens who are physically present in the United States and are seeking permanent residence to apply for and receive provisional unlawful presence waivers before departing the U.S. for consular processing of their immigrant visa applications abroad. This new process will significantly reduce the time that U.S. citizens are separated from their immediate relatives while those family members go through the immigrant visa process to become permanent residents. Please note that this new process is not yet in effect and USCIS will not accept any applications until March 4, 2013. This final rule is separate and distinct from the Form I-601 centralization process.
To Join the Session - Please use the information below to join the session. We recommend calling in 15 minutes prior to the start of the teleconference.
