The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has announced new family reunification parole processes for certain nationals of Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras who are principal beneficiaries of an approved Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, and their qualifying immediate family members. The new family reunification parole program is for immigrants who are from Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador and Colombia who are the beneficiaries of approved I-130 application which have been filed by their U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents relatives to bring over immediate family members. The process begins with DHS issuing invitations to participate in these processes which will be mailed to certain petitioners whose Forms I-130 are already approved. If you receive an invitation, you can submit a Form I-134A, Online Request to be a Supporter and Declaration of Financial Support, for each beneficiary. You must submit a separate Form I-134A for each beneficiary. If DHS confirms that your Form I-134A is sufficient, DHS will complete comprehensive security vetting on the principal beneficiary and their immediate family members and will consider the principal beneficiary and their immediate family members for advance travel authorization on a case-by-case basis. If DHS issues advance travel authorization to the principal beneficiary and their immediate family members, they will be able to come to a U.S. port of entry to seek parole. If granted parole, they may wait in the United States for their immigrant visa to become available and then apply to adjust status to lawful permanent resident (get a Green Card). Principal beneficiaries and their immediate family members who are paroled into the United States under these processes may request employment authorizations upon entry which wil lallow them to work legally while waiting for the process to be approved. Please note that these parole processes are ONLY for certain nationals of Colombia, Cuba, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, and Honduras who are principal beneficiaries of an approved Form I-130, and their immediate family members and you must receive an invitation to participate in these processes to be eligible.
