A Filipino World War II veteran and his or her spouse, who is either a US citizen or green card holder, and who has an approved I-130 petition for a family member, may request parole for the family member so that the latter may unite with the former in the US even prior to the availability of the family member's immigrant visa. This rule, which took effect on June 8, 2016, eases the separation between the veteran and his or her family member due to lengthy visa wait times.

Likewise, a child or sibling of the Filipino WWII veteran may request parole on his or her own behalf and his or her spouse and unmarried child and under 21, if the veteran and his or her spouse are both deceased, and either one of the following is met:

  • The I-130 petition was approved while the petitioner was alive and after the petitioner's death, USCIS grants reinstatement of the I-130 under 8 CFR 205.1(a)(3)(i)(C)(2) or grants relief under INA 204(l); or
  • If the petitioner dies while the Form I-130 is pending, and the beneficiary or derivative beneficiary was living in the United States at the time of the petitioner’s death and is still living in the United States, USCIS subsequently approves the I-130 petition under INA 204(l).

Feel free to contact Filipino immigration lawyer, Carlo Borja, should you need assistance in applying for parole under this program.
