How D-3 Waivers and Parole in Place May Benefit You

On June 18, the Biden Administration announced plans to work on streamlining processes to help Dreamers with and without DACA find alternative pathways to non-immigrant, employment based visas that can ultimately lead to permanent residency. To do this, they are going to facilitate the D-3 waiver.

Below are 2 opportunities for you to learn more about how the new policies may benefit you.

  1. You are invited to attend a webinar on July 10 about the D-3 Waiver Process, hosted in partnership with the Presidents Alliance and Cornell Law School:

Streamlining Dreamers’ Access to Employment-Based Visas Using D-3 Waivers

Wednesday, July 10th

2:00 pm ET

  1. If you are interested in a legal screening to see if you may be a candidate for this new process, please read and complete this form. We have hired an immigration attorney who will review your information and, if applicable the attorney will reach out to you for an initial screening. The attorney will tell you if you may be eligible for a D-3 waiver, visa, or any other pathway.

Note: You do not need to have DACA or TPS to be screened, but you must meet at least one of the eligibility criteria listed in the form.
