What is Humanitarian Parole?

There are certain situations when it may be necessary for a foreign national to be granted entry into the United States on an urgent and immediate basis. While these types of situations are rare, allowing such an individual to travel to the United States may be beneficial to the general public. It could also be the humanitarian thing to do. In the majority of these circumstances, it is may not be feasible for the individual in question to obtain a temporary visitor visa through standard immigration channels due to his or her ineligibility for a visa. Humanitarian parole may be available for those individuals whose needs merit entry, yet whose qualifications make him or her ineligible.

If you or a loved one has an emergency situation you believe may warrant immediate entry based on humanitarian reasons, applying for humanitarian parole could be your answer. Here are a few examples which may lead you to consider applying for humanitarian parole:

  • An immediate family member currently residing in the U.S. is ill
  • You have sustained serious injury or contracted an illness for which the proper medical care is unavailable in your home country, yet is available in the United States
  • You are a witness in an upcoming trial and need to come to the U.S. to testify

Humanitarian parole is not intended to be a way to bypass the standard immigration process. This type of immigration relief is only available to those who can show they are truly in need of humanitarian assistance or other public interest reasons.
