El 28 de julio de 2016, el Departamento de Seguridad Nacional amplió considerablemente el programa del Perdón Provisional. Este programa ha permitido que los beneficiarios de determinadas peticiones familiares puedan obtener una dispensa de inadmisibilidad por presencia ilegal de más de 180 días antes de la entrevista de visa de inmigrante, evitando la necesidad de obtener en el extranjero tal perdón ante la Embajada o el Consulado de EE.UU., por lo tanto acorta enormemente el tiempo lejos de sus familiares.
On July 28, 2016, the Department of Homeland Security significantly expanded the provisional waiver program. The provisional waiver program had allowed beneficiaries of certain family petitions to obtain a waiver of inadmissibility for unlawful presence of greater than 180 days before the immigrant visa interview, avoiding the necessity to obtain such a waiver at the US embassy or consulate abroad, thus greatly shortening the time away from their families.
On January 3, 2013, the USCIS published the final rule for provisional waivers with the effective date of March 4, 2013. Meaning, the USCIS will not accept waiver regulations until then. However, if you have not filed the I-130 petition, a step necessary to file the provisional waiver, you can do this now. What is this new rule?
According to USCIS officials, the Proposed Rule on Provisional Unlawful Presence Waivers (also known as the Stateside Waivers of Unlawful Presence) is expected to be published in the Federal Register by the end of the calendar year 2012. The immigration agency is preparing a field guidance and training manuals, and expects that adjudication standards will be very close to those currently in place for centralized I-601 waivers.
