Other documents that should be included are explanations on why the prospective parolee could not obtain waivers of inadmissibility if applicable, or the reason why a non-immigrant visa could not be obtained from the Department of State.

ICE may also grant parole to a person with final orders of removal. CBP may also grant humanitarian parole at the port of entry.
