All About Humanitarian Permits and Family Reunification Processes for Ecuador

Todo Sobre los Procesos de Permisos Humanitarios y Reunificación Familiar para Ecuador

In today’s world, immigration and family reunification are topics of great importance. Recently, new humanitarian permit processes have been implemented that affect several countries, including Ecuador. This post will explore these processes in detail and what you need to know if you are considering applying.

What are Family Reunification Humanitarian Permits?

Family reunification humanitarian permits are government efforts to facilitate legal and safe migration, focusing on maintaining family unity. These permits are available for various countries, including Ecuador, Colombia, Cuba, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, and Honduras.

The Application Process 

This process is unique and only available by invitation. If a beneficiary is eligible, they may come to the United States while waiting for their immigrant visa based on a family petition.

Key Requirements

  • Have an approved I-130 petition.
  • Be outside the United States at the time of application.
  • Be a citizen of the country with the reunification process available, in this case, Ecuador.
  • Not have previously received an immigrant visa.
  • Have a valid and current passport.

Additional Steps and Benefits of Humanitarian Permits 

Once selected, the beneficiary must complete a medical examination and background check. Beneficiaries may receive a temporary stay permit in the United States, which can last up to three years. During this time, they can apply for a work permit and a social security number.

It is vital to understand these processes and stay updated on government changes.
