The Family Reunification Program (FRP) is available by invitation only from the U.S. Department of State to certain petitioners who have filed a family petition (Form I-130) that has already been approved by USCIS.
If the principal beneficiary of this approved petition is a national of Colombia, Cuba, El Salvador, Ecuador, Haiti, Honduras or Guatemala, he/she may benefit, if invited to participate in the program, together with his/her immediate family members. This program allows both the principal beneficiary and his or her eligible immediate family members to be considered for authorization to stay in the United States on a temporary basis while awaiting immigrant visa availability.
Invitations to participate in this program are sent to petitioners by mail or e-mail. Petitioners who would like to participate will then have to complete a form to become a Supporting Person for the primary beneficiaries and their accompanying immediate family members.
After this process is approved and advance travel authorization is granted, the beneficiary and his or her immediate family members may travel on a commercial airline and obtain a temporary stay permit (at the discretion of the Immigration Service) at a U.S. airport.
Then, while the principal beneficiary and his or her immediate family members are waiting for their immigrant visa quota in the United States, they may apply for employment authorization through USCIS services.
