The Cuban Family Reunification Parole Program (CFRP) and Form I-130

Home » Immigration Help & Resources » The Cuban Family Reunification Parole Program (CFRP) and Form I-130

The Cuban Family Reunification Parole Program was created in 2007 and allows certain eligible United States citizens and lawful permanent residents to apply for parole for family members in Cuba. After completing the process, if approved, these family members are allowed to come to the U.S. without waiting for their visas to become current. After coming to the U.S., CFRP beneficiaries are encouraged to apply for work authorization while they go through the process to become a legal permanent resident.

The official website of the Department of Homeland Security urges Cuban refugees who are looking to seek asylum in the United States, to not attempt to come to the U.S. by boat; it is life-threatening and you will NOT be able to qualify for the CFRP Program if you do so.

Eligibility requirements for CFRP are as follows:

  • You must be either a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident (LPR)
  • You have a completed and approved Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, for a Cuban family member
  • An immigrant visa is not yet available for said relative
  • You received an invitation from the Department of State’s National Visa Center (NVC) to take part in the CFRP Program
  • The family member that you are applying for must be a Cuban national, residing in Cuba
  • The family member that you are applying for must have a petitioner who has been invited by the CFRP Program

Reminder: The CFRP Program is by NVC invitation only.

The Department of Homeland Security wants to remind U.S. citizens that this process is not for immediate relatives; such as: spouses, unmarried children under the age of 21, or parents of U.S. citizens over the age of 21. For the aforementioned relatives, they can immediately apply for immigrant visas once their Form I-130 is approved. Moreover, you may not file a Form I-130 if you are an adopted child, a natural parent if the U.S. citizen son or daughter received permanent residence via adoption, a stepparent or stepchild if the marriage occurred after the son or daughter’s 18th birthday, a spouse who gained permanent residence via marriage, etc.

Filing Fees for Form I-130:

Individual filing fees for Form I-130 may vary, depending on how many relatives you wish to sponsor and whether or not you seek the help of an immigration attorney. Since 2014, the filing fee for I-130 has been $420 for each separate “immediate relative” that you are filing for. However, if you are a permanent resident sponsoring more than one relative, they may qualify as “derivative” relatives, in which you would not have to submit multiple I-130s for.  Be sure to check the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) website to stay up-to-date with Form I-130 filing fees, as they change regularly.

US immigration bonds were absolutely the best they were super professional. When I was down and out when my husband was detained by immigration they were very caring , knowledgeable, and patient. I called them a thousand times and they were very empathic and helpful everytime I called. they reassures me that everything would be fine, and that they would help me my husband, and my children be reunited again. They did everything they could to get me a same day release. They exceeded my expectations. I would not recommend any company other than US immigration bonds. Us immigration bonds, under promises and over fulfills. They were a true blessing ! Thank you so much more

Jeremy Wolf and his agency have been a terrific resource for me as I delve into this foreign world of bonding a friend out of jail so he and his wife can work on his case on the "outside." Jeremy has been unfailingly polite and informative and his video regarding how to complete the necessary forms was a valuable tool too. The entire process was quick and relatively easy. I especially appreciated not having to deal with a jaded, impatient, figure--it-out-yourself kind of person when I was treading in really unfamiliar territory. My questions were always answered quickly and efficiently.I highly recommend this company in your time of need for quick, efficient and professional service with no attitude or more

Jeremy Wolf, is compassionate and understanding. He has been there and done it with his own family, and together with his wife they dedicate their time and energy into helping other families come together. I know this because my husband was taken by ICE and his bond was set much higher than I could have imagined, having in my hands at any given time. ... With Jeremy, his wife and the rest of the team we were able to piece together the required 80% and set up a affordable and convient payment plan. It was a grueling process, at times I felt like I was going to loose all my hair, as I ran around selling homemade tamales, and had various other fund raisers going on, along with my husband being detained, I lost my home, my dog and my daughter and I pushed forward with the help and support of Jeremy and his team, if It wasn't for there hours of help and dedication, to put a previous bond for my nephew into action to help my husband, we wouldn't have been able to have him home for the Holidays. ... To Jeremy, Veronica, and Amber, who I spoke with often, and the other parts of the team who I was unable to catch their names, I THANK YOU, FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!read more
