Humanitarian Parole – Reuniting Families During Trying Times

The Immigration and Nationality Act generally requires visitors and immigrants into the U.S. to obtain a visa. Humanitarian parole enables those who are otherwise unable to obtain a visa to enter the United States for up to one year, provided they convince the government that exigent circumstances exist such that this special permission is warranted. Typical applications for humanitarian parole involve life-threatening medical emergencies, the reunification of young children with families, or the emergent need to attend to a close relative who either is dying, or has recently passed away.
