Immigration Help Available to Those Affected by Natural Disasters and Other Unforeseen Circumstances
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services reminds the public that we offer immigration services that may help people affected by unforeseen circumstances such as natural disasters in the United States and abroad. Examples of unforeseen circumstances include, but are not limited to, the flooding in Pakistan and Hurricane Fiona in Puerto Rico.
The following measures may be available on a case-by-case basis upon request:
Changing a nonimmigrant status or extending a nonimmigrant stay for an individual currently in the United States. If you fail to apply for the extension or change before expiration of your authorized period of admission, we may excuse that if the delay was due to extraordinary circumstances beyond your control;
Reparole of individuals previously granted parole by USCIS;
Expedited processing of advance parole requests;
