Who can participate and how?

This program is currently for Cubans, Haitians, and Venezuelans who were in Colombia on or before June 11, 2023, regardless of whether they entered the country regularly or irregularly, and who, at the time of application, have a regular status or are in the process of regularization in the country.

Please note that occasionally the online form may be temporarily unavailable to allow for application processing. If the online form is closed when you attempt to apply, you may submit your application when the form becomes active again. Please visit this website regularly to check if the online form is available or not.

We will review your application to determine if you meet the program requirements. After an initial review, we will contact you and inform you if you will proceed in the process or if you do not qualify. If you continue in the process, you may be scheduled for an in-person interview in Colombia. If you meet the requirements, you may be able to travel to the United States with the support of this program.

All final decisions on entering the United States are made by the United States authorities.
