The United States is taking a series of measures to increase support for the Cuban and Haitian people in line with our national interests. Both Cuban and Haitian people are confronting a humanitarian crisis and our policy focuses on empowering people to help them create a future free from repression and economic suffering. 
Expanding access to lawful migration pathways offers migrants safe and orderly alternatives to irregular migration and its numerous dangers and indignities. In support of this goal, the United States is rebuilding operational capacity to resume the Cuban Family Reunification Parole (CFRP) Program and Haitian Family Reunification Parole (HFRP) Program operations. 
In May 2022, the United States announced the resumption of operations for the Cuban Family Reunification Parole (CFRP) Program, which was established in 2007. CFRP provides a safe, orderly pathway to the United States for certain Cuban beneficiaries of approved family-based immigrant petitions. 
The CFRP Program allows certain eligible U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents (LPRs) to apply for parole for their family members in Cuba. If approved for parole, these family members may come to the United States before their immigrant visa priority dates become current. Once in the United States, CFRP Program beneficiaries may apply for work authorization while they wait to apply for lawful permanent resident status. 
The United States will initiate the resumption of operations for the CFRP Program this summer, beginning by contacting petitioners who have a pending CFRP application. To receive an approval for parole, decided on a case-by-case basis, a CFRP beneficiary must complete processing and attend an interview. 
The Department of Homeland Security is announcing the resumption of operations for the Haitian Family Reunification Parole (HFRP) Program, which was established in 2014, and allows certain eligible U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents to apply for parole for their family members in Haiti. 
The HFRP Program enables family members who are approved for parole to come to the United States before their immigrant visa priority dates became current. Once in the United States, HFRP Program beneficiaries may apply for work authorization while they wait to apply for lawful permanent resident status. 
The United States will initiate the resumption of operations for the HFRP Program this fall, beginning with mailing new invitations to petitioners who appear eligible to apply for HFRP on behalf of their family members. Phased invitations to the program will continue to be issued as operational factors permit. To receive an approval for parole, decided on a case-by-case basis, an HFRP beneficiary must complete processing and attend an interview.
