Afghans who were paroled into the United States after July 31, 2021, have temporary authorization to remain in the United States and are eligible for certain public benefits. In order to remain in the United States permanently, most Afghan parolees will need to apply for a more permanent form of immigration relief.
If you are an Afghan parolee who resides in Illinois, Indiana, or Wisconsin (not at a military base), please complete the form below to view an NIJC legal orientation video for Afghan parolees. At this time, we do not have space in our pro se workshops to accommodate any additional applicants. However, providing your information will allow us to follow up if we have space for additional participants.

Your information is being provided to the National Immigrant Justice Center solely for the purpose of determining whether you are eligible for our services and will not be shared with any other organization.
