You cannot claim your parents as dependents unless they are U.S. citizens, resident aliens, nationals, or Canadian or Mexican residents.

 

Please read this TurboTax Help topic for more information.

At this site, on the left, click "Table 5. Overview of the Rules for Claiming a Dependent"

 

Also refer to https://www.irs.gov/publications/p501#en_US_2021_publink[phone number removed]
