What is Humanitarian Parole?

Humanitarian Parole is for those experiencing extenuating circumstances which may grant them temporary parole into the United States. Individuals may apply for Humanitarian Parole to enter the U.S. only under emergency or humanitarian circumstances. This parole is temporary and is usually granted only so long as the duration of the emergency exists. There are several situations in which a person might be eligible for Humanitarian Parole, but it is ultimately at the discretion of the Humanitarian Affairs Branch of USCIS, the Customs and Border Protection (CBP), or the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officer reviewing their case.
