The U.S. Government has informed that, as of January 6, 2023, it opened a program to improve the quality of life of people from some countries with socio-economic problems. The beneficiary countries are Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela. This program will benefit people who are from these countries and do not have citizenship or permanent residency in another country, and their immediate family members such as spouses and children under 21 years of age. Through a sponsor who is lawfully present in the United States, these individuals will be able to obtain a travel document to enter the United States for two years.
Those who have been deported within the last 5 years, who have entered illegally through Panama or Mexico after January 6, 2023, or who are citizens or permanent residents of another country will not be eligible for this program. The U.S. government has also indicated that persons of these nationalities who attempt to enter the U.S. illegally will be returned to Mexico. For more information about this program you can contact our main office at 954-306-6921, or by WhatsApp at +1 (954) 329-632.
