Immigration Issues/Emergency Immigration
I am a US citizen who wishes to bring my sick father from Nigeria. I am aware that I could petition for a green card but that would take some time (6 months or so). Is there a faster way through a medical emergency "program?" Incidentally, he was a green card holder before who suffered a stroke while visiting Nigeria several years ago. He has since lost his green card. What are the obstacles that I face?
You may request to have your father paroled in for Humanitarian reasons.
Go to your local CIS office and get form I-131 Application for Travel Document. You will also need to fill out an Affidavit of Support (form I-134). you will be responsible for his medical expenses.
