Specifically, individuals paroled into the United States at a port of entry between February 24, 2022, and April 25, 2022, will be considered for the one-year extension. DHS said it is considering these individuals, on a case-by-case basis, for the one-year extension to align with the two-year parole period provided under Uniting for Ukraine. DHS estimates that it will take approximately four weeks to consider and vet all the individuals in the group. The agency will review cases based on the date of parole.
