The Department of Homeland Security has announced that it will exempt fees for re-parole and work authorization renewals for certain Afghan nationals.
Additional Information: Afghan parolees who have already applied for asylum or lawful permanent resident status do not need to apply for re-parole. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will extend their original employment authorization and send a Form I-797C, Notice of Additional Action, to their last address of record with USCIS.
BAL Analysis: DHS has exempted the fees for re-parole and work authorization renewals to allow qualifying Afghan nationals to continue to live and work in the United States while pursuing a more permanent immigration status. BAL will continue to follow developments specifically affecting Afghan nationals and will provide updates as information becomes available.
