Humanitarian Parole

Humanitarian parole is a unique category allowing people who may otherwise be unable to enter the U.S. to do so on relatively short notice. To be eligible for this category, your travel to the U.S. must be due to an emergency humanitarian situation or to promote significant public benefits. For example, we have recently completed humanitarian parole applications for people fleeing the widespread humanitarian crises in Afghanistan, Haiti, and Ukraine. Humanitarian parole can also be used for individual emergencies, such as an immigrant who urgently needs a life-saving surgery that can only be performed in the United States.

To apply for Asylum, you must already be in the U.S. or at a port of entry.
