For the NACARA Law, citizens from different countries qualify; like Nicaragua, Cuba, El Salvador, Guatemala and several of the countries that belonged to the Soviet Union. For each country in particular, there are different conditions and privileges. Next, we will see how the law is applied to citizens of El Salvador and Guatemala.

  • It can be requested by people who requested asylum on or before April 1, 1990.
  • Persons who arrived in the US on or after September 19, 1990 can also qualify; and they were registered in ABC or TPS (Temporary Protected Status) before October 31, 1991.
  • They can also benefit the wife or husband, or children under 21 years of age, as long as they are in US territory, regardless of nationality.
