Humanitarian Parole for Aliens outside the United States:

People who had previously been to their native country from the United States for a variety of personal reasons are now stuck there and unable to return to the United States during this Covid-19 time.

Many of them are currently ineligible to enter the United States due to status issues, expired green cards or re-entry permits, etc. The hottest topic right now is how they can return to the United States.

For a Green card holder who is barred from entering the country due to a protracted absence—say, more than a year or two—our earlier post described SB1 Returning Resident Visa, the lawful route, with or without a re-entry visa.

We’ll talk about humanitarian parole and emergency travel today. Those who are travelling to the United States from abroad due to emergency situations will find this information useful.

Humanitarian Parole

For those outside of the United States, parole could also be obtained in one of two methods. First, they or someone else outside the United States could obtain humanitarian parole by submitting USCIS Form I-131, Application for Travel Document.

Aliens who need a travel document for urgent humanitarian reasons frequently submit Form I-131 (Application for Travel Document). Humanitarian parole is the term typically used to describe this type of parole authorization.

Humanitarian parole allows an ineligible person to go to the United States for relief or a significant public benefit. Anyone may apply for humanitarian parole, but unless there is an urgent need, a distant national must have exhausted all other options for obtaining a visa.

Humanitarian Parole

1) A child under the age of 16 needs to be reunited with family;

2) A foreign national needs urgent medical care that they cannot obtain in their home country;

3) A foreign national must appear in court;

 4) A foreign national must visit a family member who is dying;

 5) There may be a serious emergency.

Additionally, if it is clear that the parolee plans to stay longer than the permitted parole, the parole is unlikely to be granted. Therefore, it’s important to consider whether there is an emergency and whether all other visa possibilities have been exhausted when determining whether humanitarian parole may be a type of relief that would be used.
