This page provides information for CAM applicants whose applications were closed when the Trump Administration ended the program and who want to re-open their case now that President Biden has re-started the program.
What do I need to do to have my case re-opened?
In March 2021, resettlement agencies began contacting CAM parents in the United States whose applications were closed when the CAM program ended under President Trump.
Parents who want to re-open their cases must respond to the resettlement agencies to say that they want the cases re-opened.
Once the parents have said that they want their cases re-opened, IOM will contact your children and family members in the United States. IOM is a contractor of the U.S. Department of State. Your family members must also say that they want their cases re-opened.
My family situation has changed. Are we still eligible for CAM?
To be eligible for the CAM program:
- The parent must continue to have one of several lawful statuses in the United States
- The qualifying children must remain unmarried, and live in a place where CAM processing is available such as El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. Processing may be available in other locations.
What happens after my CAM application is re-opened?
What if I want my case re-opened but I haven’t been contacted by a resettlement agency?
