Haitian Family Parole Program
USCIS updated its guidance on the Haitian Family Reunification Parole (HFRP) program at the end of September 2021, noting that it will continue the program after DHS reversed its 2019 announcement that it would terminate the program. Participation in the program is currently by invitation only. It provides a lawful, safe, and orderly pathway for certain Haitians to seek parole into the United States, allowing them to reunite with family as they wait for their immigrant visas to become available so they may apply to adjust status to lawful permanent resident (LPR). If granted parole, these family members could come to the United States before their immigrant visa priority dates becomes current.
