USCIS will begin accepting applications to adjust to LPR status from certain Liberian nationals under Section 7611 of the National Defense Authorization Act for FY 2020, Liberian Refugee Immigration Fairness (LRIF), signed into law on December 20, 2019. To be eligible for permanent residence under LRIF, a Liberian national must have been continuously physically present in the United States from 11/20/2014 to the date they properly file an application for adjustment of status. USCIS will accept properly filed applications until 12/20/2020, one year from the enactment of the LRIF. Applicants must be otherwise eligible to receive an immigrant visa and be admissible to the United States.
