Advance Parole
In the immigration context, advance parole may be granted to a person who is already in the United States but needs to leave temporarily, without a visa. With advance parole, the applicant's pending immigration application will not be canceled while he or she is away. This helps preserve the person's right to return to the U.S. -- though it does not guarantee entry.
