USCIS Issues Comprehensive Guidance on Parole
USCIS issued policy guidance in the USCIS Policy Manual to address international entrepreneur parole. The guidance is effective immediately and applies prospectively to applications filed on or after today, March 10, 2023. USCIS is now issuing policy guidance to address international entrepreneur parole and complement the final rule. Under the International Entrepreneur Rule (IER), DHS may use its parole authority to grant a period of authorized stay, on a case-by-case basis, to noncitizen entrepreneurs who show that their stay in the United States would provide a significant public benefit through their business venture and that they merit a favorable exercise of discretion.
