Agency Information Collection Activities: Petition for Nonimmigrant Worker, Form I-129; Extension, Without Change, of a Currently Approved Collection, 67371-67372 [2016-23682]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 190 / Friday, September 30, 2016 / Notices Individuals covered under DED who would like to travel outside of the United States must apply for and receive advance parole by filing an Application for Travel Document (Form I–131) with required fee before departing from the United States. See 8 CFR 223.2(a). DHS has the discretion to determine whether to grant advance parole and cannot guarantee advance parole in all cases. In addition, possession of an advance parole document does not guarantee that you will be permitted to re-enter the United States, as that is a decision that will be made by an immigration officer at the port of entry upon your return. If you seek advance parole to travel to Liberia or to your country of last habitual residence outside the United States, you will risk being found ineligible to reenter the United States under DED because the Presidential Memorandum excludes persons ‘‘who have voluntarily returned to Liberia or his or her country of last habitual residence outside the United States.’’ You may submit your completed Application for Travel Document (Form I–131) with your Application for 67371 Employment Authorization (Form I– 765). If you are filing the Application for Travel Document (Form I–131) concurrently with your Application for Employment Authorization (Form I– 765), please submit both applications and supporting documentation to the proper address in Table 1. If you choose to file an Application for Travel Document (Form I–131) separately, please submit the application along with supporting documentation that you qualify for DED to the proper address in Table 2.

To facilitate communication between local and federal partners, HUD proposes that Promise Zone Lead Organizations submit minimal reports and documents to support collaboration and problem solving between local and federal partners. These reports will also assist in communications and stakeholder engagement, both locally and nationally. Respondents (i.e. affected public): Fourteen Promise Zone Lead Organizations.
