Family Reunification Parole Process for Ecuador
The Family Reunification Parole Processes promote family unity, and are part of the comprehensive measures announced by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of State, and are consistent with the Los Angeles Declaration on Migration and Protection’s objectives to strengthen national, regional, and hemispheric efforts to create the conditions for safe, orderly, humane, and regular migration.
Certain Nationals of Ecuador who are beneficiaries of an approved I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, may be eligible to be considered for parole under the new process. Qualifying beneficiaries must be outside the United States, meet all requirements, including screening and vetting and medical requirements, and must not have already received an immigrant visa.
The Family Reunification Parole process begins with the Department of State issuing an invitation to the petitioning U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident family member whose Form I-130 on behalf of an Ecuadorian beneficiary has been approved.
The Family Reunification Parole process allows for parole only on a case-by-case and temporary basis upon a demonstration of urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit, as well as demonstration that the beneficiary warrants a favorable exercise of discretion.
