Through Advance Parole or advance application for a Travel Document, beneficiaries of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) can leave the country and request re-entry.
DACA recipients cannot leave the country, as they do not have permission to re-enter the United States. The only ways for a DACA recipient to leave the United States and re-enter is through the advance parole/travel access, which allows the re-entry of foreigners to the United States.
To request a re-entry it is necessary to submit form I-131, Application for Travel Document. However, for a DACA recipient to apply for this permit, it is essential that authorities in the United States verify that their exit and re-entry serve a humanitarian, academic or employment purpose.
For example, a semester of study abroad through academic or research programs; or when for a job it is necessary to travel abroad for training, meeting with clients, among other reasons.
In this way, through educational programs abroad, DACA recipients can return to their country of origin. For example, the California-Mexico Study Center offers academic programs for DACA recipients of Mexican origin. "This legal entry eliminates the undocumented entry, which all these young people had when they were brought to this country by their parents or an adult," explains Armando Vázquez-Ramos, a professor at the California-Mexico Study Center, about re-entry to the country to through this application.
