Humanitarian parole is a way for foreign nationals to gain entry into the United States for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit. As humanitarian parole is used as a “last chance” option for individuals who do not have any other legal means for entering the country, it is prescribed on a case-by-case basis and is not intended to circumvent normal visa-issuing procedures.
Anyone may request parole be granted to them so long as it is based on urgent humanitarian conditions or there would be a significant public benefit. However, since parole means to be granted entry into the country, humanitarian parole can only be requested by individuals who are outside of the United States.
In order to file for parole, an application for travel document needs to filled out and you must prove that upon entry you will not become a public charge. A detailed explanation of the reason for requesting parole and evidence of emergency or urgent matter must be presented.
Since humanitarian parole is extremely difficult to receive, contacting a skilled immigration attorney can make the chances of approval more likely.
