Annandale Humanitarian Parole Attorneys
Serving Clients in Washington, D.C. & Nationwide
United States Citizenship and Immigration Services will in some limited circumstances grant humanitarian parole to foreign nationals who do not otherwise qualify for immigration benefits. This form of discretionary relief allows beneficiaries to enter the United States to handle emergencies or for humanitarian reasons.
If you have an immediate need to enter the United States and are not able to obtain a visitor visa, our team at Johnson & Masumi can explore whether you may be eligible for humanitarian parole. Our Annandale humanitarian parole lawyers are not afraid to take on tough cases and is ready to fight for you. We understand how USCIS adjudicates these requests and will work tirelessly to secure a favorable outcome.
It is important to understand that USCIS does not regularly grant humanitarian parole requests. Seeking humanitarian parole should generally be seen as a “last resort.” Petitioning for an applicable visitor visa or another immigration benefit will often be a more reliable means of entering the United States. If you are inadmissible to the U.S. as a result of unlawful presence or some other factor, however, you may have no other choice but to request humanitarian parole.
USCIS may consider granting humanitarian parole despite conditions of inadmissibility if:
- You are seriously ill, your condition cannot be adequately treated in your home country, and your condition can be effectively treated in the United States.
- You wish to visit a U.S.-based loved one who is seriously ill and not likely to recover.
- You wish to attend the funeral services for a U.S.-based loved one.
- You have been called to testify in a U.S.-based trial.

Caveats of Humanitarian Parole
Receiving humanitarian parole does not undo or eliminate any existing conditions of inadmissibility. Beneficiaries of this relief cannot seek permanent immigration benefits while in the country on humanitarian parole. If conditions of inadmissibility are preventing you from accessing benefits you otherwise qualify for, you will need to obtain the applicable waiver.
Beneficiaries of humanitarian parole will typically only be allowed to stay in the United States for a very limited time. In most circumstances, you will be limited to the amount of time it takes to handle your emergency. The maximum amount of time is one year, and extensions are not common.
Despite these restrictions, obtaining this relief is not easy. Our Annandale humanitarian parole attorney at Johnson & Masumi can help you navigate the application process and explore all available immigration strategies.
