Relief for Nationals from Central America Stranded in the U.S. Due to Extreme Flooding

Posted by: ScottMond Law Firm

Topic: Special Situations and Humanitarian Relief

Extreme flooding occurring in Central America has led U.S. Citizenship and Immigration
Services (USCIS) to reminding everyone of immigration benefits available upon request to
eligible nationals from countries in that region.

USCIS understands that a natural disaster can affect an individual’s ability to establish or
maintain lawful immigration status. Temporary relief measures available to eligible
nationals from Central American countries that are currently in the U.S. may include:
Approval for a change or extension of non-immigrant status, even in cases where the
request is submitted after an individual’s authorized period of admission has expired.

  • Re-parole of individuals granted parole by USCIS.Extension of certain grants of advance parole and expedited processing of requests for advance parole.
  • Expedited adjudication and approval of requests by students with F-1 visas for off-campus employment authorization due to severe economic hardship.
  • Expedited processing of immigrant petitions for immediate relatives of U.S. citizens and permanent residents.
  • Expedited processing of employment authorization.
  • Assistance, in coordination with the Department of State, to permanent residents stranded overseas without documents.
