USCIS Makes Changes to Form I-131, the Application for Travel Document, to Better Reflect Requirements for DACA Recipients

30 Nov 2012
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has, over the past year, published two notices regarding information collection on Form I-131, the Application for Travel Document. While no comments were received in connection with these two notices, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) did have some recommendations, which are now reflected in the instructions to Form I-131.

In addition, USCIS is revising the instructions of Form I-131 to include clear guidance regarding the ability of Deferred Action under Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients to request advance parole documents under certain circumstances. USCIS has noted an increase in the number of respondents utilizing this form, as DACA recipients who are able to establish a need to travel outside of the U.S. will be able to request advance parole documents.
