DACA Renewal and Advance Parole


This practice advisory, issued by the Immigrant Legal Resource Center and United We Dream, provides information on common issues that Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) renewal applicants face after traveling outside of the United States with advance parole. DACA recipients who traveled on advance parole report a variety of problems when they attempt to renew, including delayed adjudication and denials. This advisory provides information on how to prevent those problems and successfully renew DACA.


DACA recipients are urged to:

  • Not travel before or after the dates of their grant of advance parole;

  • Apply early for renewal (before 150 days) if they traveled using advance parole; and

  • Report problems with their renewal requests related to advance parole to the ILRC at www.ilrc.org/ced/DACA

You can download the complete 8-page practice advisory, in English or Spanish, from our website. We urge you to share this valuable resource with your colleagues and other contacts.
