Uniting for Ukraine – a 2-year stay in the US for Citizens of Ukraine

Posted by Marcin Muszynski | May 08, 2022 | 0 Comments

The new program enacted by the Biden administration will allow displaced citizens of Ukraine and their families to come the US for 2 years.

The process:

  1. Affidavit of Support – a US based individual (does not have to be a family member) submits an affidavit of support application online at
  2. Once the supporter is approved by the USCIS, the Ukrainian beneficiary will receive an email with instructions to create the online account.
  3. The Ukrainian beneficiary will need to confirm vaccination against measles, polio, and COVID-19. If not vaccinated, at least the first dose is required before travel authorization to the US is granted.
  4. USCIS will then notify the Ukrainian beneficiary via the online account that the travel authorization is granted – the authorization is valid for 90 days.
  5. The Ukrainian beneficiary will have to arrange his/her own transportation to the US. This includes an air ticket, a valid passport and negative COVID-19 test. All individuals older than 2, will need to complete a medical screening for tuberculosis within 2 weeks of arrival to the US.
  6. Once at the border, the Ukrainian beneficiaries will be paroled for up to 2 years; they will be eligible to apply for employment authorization as well.
