For dreamers beneficiaries of Deferred Action (DACA), to leave the country without losing their benefits and re-enter legally, it is necessary that they process a document called Advance Parole.
Through Advance Parole or advance application for a Travel Document, DACA recipients can leave the country and request re-entry, legally and without losing their benefits. Otherwise, if a person with DACA leaves the country without authorization, he would lose his benefits and could not legally return.
DACA recipients are eligible to obtain Advance Parole, unlike other foreigners living in the United States, such as foreigners with exchange visas, holders of a valid reentry permit, or foreigners without valid immigration status.
As mentioned above, if a DACA recipient travels abroad without Advance Parole, they will lose their DACA status and will be denied entry to the United States, that is why it is necessary to process this document. To do so, it is necessary to complete the Form I-131 Application for Travel Document, which must contain the surname of the interested party, his / her address, date of birth, the type of application and the signature: https://www.uscis.gov/es/i-131
Before starting to fill out the form, you should know that it is a procedure that handles relatively high fees. The presentation of the form has a fee of $ 660 USD for people from 14 to 79 years old, and of $ 575 USD for those under 13 and over 80. In the following link you can consult the detailed instructions for filling out the form: http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-131instr.pdf
Other documents necessary for this process are: a copy of a photo identification, form I-797, which will serve as proof that the applicant is a beneficiary of DACA; a document that supports your trip, for example, a permit from the employer, a document from a relative, a letter from a university, among others depending on the case. These must be translated into English.
In addition, documents from relatives are also necessary, such as birth certificates that prove the relationship of the applicant with his family abroad; two passport-style photographs taken between 1 and 30 days after the Advance Parole was submitted; and information about the trip, or the duration of the trip, for example, documents that prove that the beneficiary will travel by plane or by land.
The waiting time can vary from 3 to 30 months. That is why it is important to submit the application with all the requested documents. If the application is approved, the interested party will receive form I-512L, which will ultimately be the document that will allow a DACA recipient to re-enter the United States after traveling abroad.
