I-941, Application for Entrepreneur Parole

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Form I-941, Application for Entrepreneur Parole, is for entrepreneurs to: (1) make an initial request for parole based upon significant public benefit, (2) a subsequent request for parole for an additional period, or (3) file an amended application to notify USCIS of a material change.

Parole allows you to be physically present in the United States for a limited time period and specific purpose based upon a significant public benefit or urgent humanitarian rationale. A person who has been “paroled” into the country has not been admitted to the United States and remains an “applicant for admission” even while paroled.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), as a matter of discretion, may grant advance parole and issue an Advance Parole Document to enable you to appear at a U.S. port-of-entry to seek parole into the United States. A transportation company (for example, a commercial airline) may accept the document in lieu of a visa as an authorization for the holder to travel to the United States. An Advance Parole Document does not substitute for any required passport.

WARNING: A grant of advance parole or issuance of an Advance Parole Document does not entitle you to be paroled into the United States. Upon your arrival at a U.S. port-of-entry, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer will make a separate discretionary decision whether to parole you into the United States.

WARNING: DHS may revoke or terminate parole or an Advance Parole Document at any time, including while you are outside the United States. In that event, you may be unable to return to the United States unless you have a valid visa or other document that permits you to travel to the United States and seek admission.
