Humanitarian reinstatement is a discretionary form of relief available to the principal beneficiary of an approved Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, that was approved before the petitioner’s death.
This is requested when the principal beneficiary of an approved immigrant visa petition was unable to immigrate to the United States within the required time frame specified by USCIS or the Department of State. The request for Humanitarian Reinstatement provides an opportunity to revive the petition and continue with the immigration process.

Humanitarian reinstatement is a benefit that depends on USCIS judgment. Making a discretionary decision involves weighing positive and negative factors.
