Who can apply for DACA now?
Anyone who qualifies for DACA can apply! It does not matter if you previously had DACA or are applying for the first time, USCIS is now accepting both types of applications.
Can I apply for DACA for the first time now?
Yes! USCIS officially started accepting initial DACA applications on December 7, 2020.
Can I apply for Advance Parole?
You can now apply for advance parole! If you need to leave the United States for work, school or for humanitarian reasons, you may qualify to apply for advance parole. Consult with a DOJ accredited representative or immigration attorney to discuss whether this is a good option for you.
When should I apply to renew my DACA?
Talk to a DOJ accredited representative or immigration attorney to discuss when is the best time to submit your application. USCIS encourages DACA recipients to submit their renewal applications 120-150 days prior to the expiration of their DACA. However, there is no deadline to submit your DACA renewal application.
I renewed my work authorization and it says it is only valid for one year, what do I do?
USCIS is required to extend all protections for the full two years.
What happens to my Social Security Number if I no longer have DACA?
Your social security number is your number for life regardless of your immigration status.
