The DHS provided advance notice of its new rule expanding provisional stateside unlawful presence waivers. Previously, only the beneficiaries of approved immediate relative petitions could be eligible for a provisional unlawful presence waiver. In the new rule, slated for publication on July 29, 2016, all persons who are statutorily eligible for an unlawful presence waiver may seek a provisional unlawful presence waiver, provided they meet the conditions in the new rules.
