Filipino World War II Veterans Parole Program

USCIS, June 8,2016 – Beginning June 8, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will allow certain Filipino World War II veteran family members who are beneficiaries of approved family-based immigrant visa petitions an opportunity to seek a discretionary grant of parole, on a case-by-case basis, to come to the United States before their visa becomes available.

In limited cases, certain eligible relatives will be able to seek parole on their own behalf if the veteran and his or her spouse are both deceased.

More information about the Filipino World War II Veterans Parole Program – including guidance on eligibility, the application process and where to file – is available in the revised Form I-131 instructions and the Federal Register notice. In the coming days, information will also be made available in Tagalog, Cebuano, and Ilocano – please check USCIS.gov/FWVP for updates.

You can also watch USCIS Director León Rodríguez announce the Filipino World War II Veterans Parole Program in English and Tagalog.

Applications under this policy will be accepted starting June 8. We strongly encourage eligible individuals interested in requesting parole under the FWVP Program do so within five years.

Beware of immigration scams. Many people offer to help with immigration services, but U.S. laws authorize only certain people and groups to provide those services.

The wrong help can hurt. Know the facts about immigration assistance. Visit uscis.gov/avoidscams to learn how to avoid scams and find authorized legal assistance.
