USCIS Updates DACA Website: Travel Requirements & Restrictions 

USCIS updated the Travel Requirements and Restrictions section of its "Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Process" website. The update includes the acceptable travel reasons (travel for vacation purposes is NOT acceptable) as well as when and where to submit the Form I-131, Application for Travel Document.

Below is the updated information as of July 1, 2013:

Once USCIS has approved your request for consideration of deferred action, you may file Form I-131, Application for Travel Document, to request advance parole to travel outside of the United States. If you travel outside the United States without first receiving advance parole, USCIS will automatically terminate your deferred action.

USCIS will only grant advance parole if your travel abroad will be for:

• Educational purposes, such as semester abroad programs or academic research;

• Employment purposes, such as overseas assignments, interviews, conferences, training, or meetings with clients; or

• Humanitarian purposes, such as travel to obtain medical treatment, attend funeral services for a family member, or visit an ailing relative.

Travel for vacation is not a valid purpose.
