In-Country Refugee/Parole Processing for Minors in Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala (Central American Minors – CAM)

Administration for Children &Families of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (2015)


The CAM Program began on December 01, 2014.  The CAM Program is an in-country refugee/parole program of the U.S. Department of State (DOS) and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) only in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras to provide a safe, legal, and orderly alternative to the dangerous journey that some children are currently undertaking to the United States.

The CAM program permits certain parents from one of these three countries who are lawfully present in the United States to request to bring their children to the United States as refugees via the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program. There is a DNA testing component to the application. 

Children determined not eligible for refugee admission but still at risk of harm may be considered for parole on a case-by-case basis through the CAM Program.

Travel costs of children who come to the U.S. through the CAM Program will not be paid or reimbursed by the U.S. government.
