As a result of the recent tragedies in the nation of Japan, including earthquakes, a tsunami and nuclear failure, the U.S. government has sent out a bulletin to remind Japanese citizens of specific U.S. immigration benefits that may be available to them.

Temporary Relief Measures for Japanese Immigrants Affected by Natural Disaster

A natural disaster as severe as those affecting Japan can have a devastating impact on a person’s ability to establish or maintain lawful immigration status. As a result of this recognition, there are temporary relief measures that certain eligible citizens of Japan may avail themselves to, including:

  • The grant of an application for change or extension of nonimmigrant status for an individual currently in the United States, even when the request is filed after the authorized period of admission has expired;
  • Re-parole of individuals granted parole by USCIS;
  • Extension of certain grants of advance parole, and expedited processing of advance parole requests;
  • Expedited adjudication and approval, where possible, of requests for off-campus employment authorization for F-1 students experiencing severe economic hardship;
  • Expedited processing of immigrant petitions for immediate relatives of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents (LPRs);
  • Expedited employment authorization where appropriate; and
  • Assistance to LPRs stranded overseas without immigration documents such as Green Cards. USCIS and the Department of State will coordinate on these matters when the LPR is stranded in a place that has no local USCIS office.

Visitors traveling under the Visa Waiver Program may visit a USCIS local office for assistance. Japanese nationals who are at a U.S. airport may contact the U.S. Customs and Border Protection office there.
