A: The answer to this question depends on the specific circumstances of the beneficiary and sponsor, and the type of visa or parole program that is being used.

In general, if the beneficiary is in the United States under a parole program, they may be required to leave the country at the end of the program period unless they are able to obtain another visa or immigration status.

If the beneficiary wishes to remain in the United States after the parole period expires, they may be able to apply for another visa or immigration status, such as a work visa or permanent residency. However, the process of obtaining a new visa or immigration status can be complex and may require meeting certain eligibility requirements.

As for the sponsor, their obligations under the I-134 Affidavit of Support may expire after the parole period, depending on the terms of the program and the specific circumstances of the beneficiary. However, the sponsor may still be required to fulfill any financial obligations that they agreed to under the affidavit, even if the beneficiary is no longer in the United States.

It is important to consult with an experienced immigration attorney for guidance on the specific requirements and obligations of the parole program and the I-134 Affidavit of Support.
