Humanitarian parole is a special benefit that enables an otherwise inadmissible individual to enter the United States temporarily for urgent humanitarian reasons. Humanitarian Parole is not intended to be used by foreigners to avoid regular visa-issuing procedures or to bypass immigration procedures.  A request for Humanitarian Parole must be well documented and warrants an exercise of discretion.   

Under limited circumstances, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) may grant parole temporarily:

  • To anyone applying for admission into the United States based on urgent humanitarian reasons or if there is a significant public benefit; or
  • For a period of time that corresponds with the length of the emergency or humanitarian situation.

Anyone granted humanitarian parole must depart the United States prior to its expiration date or risk being placed on removal proceedings. 

An individual paroled into the United States, however, may submit a request for re-parole to USCIS to extend his or her stay in the United States.
