Humanitarian Parole

Do you qualify?

Humanitarian parole allows an foreign national who is ineligible for admission to the United States to enter temporarily due to a compelling emergency.


With humanitarian parole, an otherwise ineligible alien (the “beneficiary”) can get a one-time entry for a specific purpose, such as:

  • Obtaining medical treatment, 
  • Visiting an ill family member, 
  • Attending a family member's funeral, or 
  • Testifying in a U.S. court case. 


Who is eligible?

  • There is an urgent humanitarian reason, or 
  • Allowing the alien in confers a significant public benefit


Humanitarian parole is a last-resort remedy because it is temporary and could come with strict conditions. It is not intended as a substitute for:

  • The normal visa timeline and processing
  • Processing on inadmissibility waivers
  • Asylum or other humanitarian relief


Here are some examples reasons for humanitarian parole:

  • To reunite with family members in the U.S. who are old, sick or otherwise vulnerable;
  • To care for or support a family member in the U.S. who is seriously or terminally ill;
  • To attend the funeral of or attend to the affairs of a deceased family member in the U.S.; or
  • To testify in a lawsuit in which the parolee's presence is necessary to help resolve outstanding legal issues.
