Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is an executive program that allows certain undocumented immigrants who were brought into the U.S. as children to stay and work in the U.S. on a temporary basis. Please note that the deferment action does not provide an applicant a lawful status.

- The applicant came to the U.S. at the age of 16 or younger;
- The applicant continuously resided in the U.S. since June 15, 2007;
- The applicant was physically present in the U.S. on June 15, 2012, and at the time of making the request for consideration of deferred action;
