Understanding the Haitian Family Reunification Program

USCIS recently issued its third round of invitations to apply for the Haitian Family Reunification Program (HFRP).

The HFRP Program allows certain eligible U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents (LPRs) to apply for parole for their family members in Haiti. If granted, these family members can come to the U.S.  before their immigrant visa priority dates become current. Once they are in U.S., these individuals may apply for work cards while they are waiting to apply for their green cards.

To qualify for this program, the following requirements must be met:

  1. You are either a U.S. citizen or an LPR;
  2. You filed Form I-130 for a Haitian family member and it was approved on or before December 18, 2014; 
  3. An immigrant visa is not yet available for your Haitian family member; and
  4. You received an invitation to participate in the HFRP from the National Visa Center (NVC).

If you think you may be eligible for this program and need help with the process, please don’t hesitate to call this office to schedule an appointment.
