USCUS Instructs on Orphan Screening in Haiti

"How to Schedule an Appointment for an Orphan Screening at the U.S. Embassy in Port au Prince"

"In response to the Jan. 12, 2010 earthquake in Haiti, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is actively screening Haitian children for possible humanitarian parole if they fit into one of two special categories authorized by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano on Jan. 18, 2010. The specialized categories only apply to Haitian children who were adopted or were in the process of being adopted by American families prior to Jan.12. For additional information on the eligibility criteria for both categories, please review the 'Information for U.S. Citizens in the process of adopting a child from Haiti'"
