9 FAM 202.4-1 †(U) Overview of Family Members of Filipino World War II Veterans Parole Program

(CT:VISA-282;†† 01-19-2017)

(U) U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has developed a parole program to expedite family reunifications for qualifying family members of certain Filipino WWII veterans.† Consular sections will issue these individuals boarding foils, with either a FP-1 (principal applicant) or FP-D (derivative) classification.† The Filipino World War II Veterans Parole Program (FWVP) benefits only qualifying Filipino WWII veteran family members with approved or reinstated I-130 petitions who are waiting for their priority dates to become current.† You should review these cases in a similar manner as you would a typical IV preference case. †Where USCIS is co-located with a consular section, the USCIS office will adjudicate these case files, but consular sections will still have a role in developing a boarding foil.† All work performed on behalf of USCIS will be captured under the Economy Act, and the service will be tracked for invoicing purposes through adjudicated case volumes captured at the NVC.
