In 2014, we announced the introduction of the Haitian Family Reunification Parole (HFRP) Program to speed up family reunifications for eligible Haitians and their family members in the United States. The new program allows them to join family members in the United States up to approximately two years before their immigrant visas become available. This program is not only important to the individuals it assists, but in a larger sense, to the nation of Haiti as it recovers from the 2010 earthquake.

The program is being implemented as follows:
  • The Department of State’s National Visa Center (NVC) issues invitations to U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents (petitioners) who filed Forms I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, for Haitian family members who were approved on or before Dec. 18, 2014. These family members must also have immigrant visas that are expected to be available approximately within 18 - 30 months from the date of the invitation. 
  • Only petitioners who receive invitations from the NVC will be eligible to apply for the HFRP Program. Petitioners should make sure that the NVC has their current mailing addresses. Petitioners can update their addresses with the NVC using the Public Inquiry Form found on the Department of State’s website at
Additional information about the HFRP Program including eligibility requirements and fees is available at in English and Creole.

Please speed up processing of K-1 visa at CSC and TSC ... It is brutal to have to wait this long to bring our fiances over when we are AMERICAN TAX PAYING citizens. We should be given highest priority over "ILLEGAL" aliens (please pay attention to the word ILLEGAL) and non US citizens. Why does the USCIS get such pleasure from causing all this stress and emotional pain ? Google VISAJOURNEY and read about all the HORROR STORIES the US GOVERNMENT is causing it's citizens. The USCIS is unbelievable - We deserve better from our government !

Not a lot of Haitians live in Dallas but there are a lot of Salvadorans. Some Salvadorans have work permits but many are in the deportation process and must hire immigration attorneys to stop their deportations. I hope that Immigration considers a deferred action status for Salvadorans so they can close their deportation cases.

As Canada has offered Permanent Residency to all of their Temporarily Protected Haitian Residents, will the United States extend the same courtesy to its Temporarily Protected Haitian Residents who can prove they were victims of the 2010 Earthquake and it is not at all educationally, financially, and politically beneficial for them to return to their birth country ?
