My child is at a hospital here in the U.S. undergoing experimental surgery for his cancer. The treatment will be ongoing and he could require a bone marrow transplant from his family members at any time over the next few years. One two hospitals in the entire world are participating in this study and they are both in the U.S. So far, we have extended B1/B2 visa as long as possible with immigration. We will have to return to Egypt now. Is there any long term visa that my son and/or his family members can get to be able to travel to the U.S. at a moment's notice?
To my knowledge, there is no long term visa for cancer patients and their family members.
Your son may be able to get humanitarian parole based on "Medical Parole" with the consent of your consent. You cannot use parole to avoid normal visa-issuing procedures or to bypass immigration procedures.
