From DocketwiseFebruary 11, 2022Expedited processing hub in Qatar. The Biden administration is developing a system in Qatar to speed up the processing of at-risk Afghans overseas that are seeking permanent legal status in the U.S. and a resettlement destination. The U.S. has already received and resettled tens of thousands of Afghans through a temporary humanitarian process known as parole. Humanitarian parole leaves the Afghan evacuees in a legal limbo unless they qualify for asylum or visas. Through the new program, the U.S. is hoping to ensure future Afghan arrivals come to the country after they finish the refugee or Special Immigrant Visas process. The expedited program will be based in Camp As Sayliyah, a U.S. Army base in Qatar. Eligible evacuees will be interviewed by U.S. officials, given medical checks and security screenings.
