Uniting for Ukraine was put into effect on April 21, 2022, to provide a pathway for Ukrainian citizens and their immediate family members who are outside the United States to stay in the U.S. temporarily for a two-year period of parole. These individuals must have a supporter in the U.S. who agree to provide them with financial support during their stay. More information on Uniting for Ukraine can be found here.
Those paroled into the United States under Uniting for Ukraine have now been granted a time extension to comply with the medical screening for tuberculosis and additional vaccinations, if required. Effective immediately, these individuals must complete the medical attestation within 90 days of arrival. This decision was made by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on July 13, 2022.
Before this announcement was made, beneficiaries paroled into the U.S. under Uniting for Ukraine were required to complete the medical screening and attestation within just 14 days of arrival.
The screening and attestation are a condition of parole and must be completed in the beneficiary’s U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services account.
